Directions:
Directions:
I use a food processor to mix ingredients (you can use a mixer also). First chop the nuts and take out of bowl, then chop the onions. Add cream cheese, mayo, 1 Cup of nuts, horse radish, & onions to the processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth and mixed. Take out of bowl (be careful of the blade) Divide up mixture into 2 bowls. I put wax paper in the bowls first. Then refrigerate for 30 minutes or more. Roll cheese into a nice size ball after chilling and roll balls in remaining nuts. Put them on a pretty dish and give as a present or serve at a party. I add a cherry on top for decoration.

Grandma Goatley used to make these every Christmas for friends and for our family Christmas party. Aunt Paula took on the tradition after she passed away. Grandma used to make them all by hand. Serve with crackers
