Directions:
Let cream cheese soften at least an hour at room temperature. Add water chestnuts and garlic - I've never measured this, but my guess is about 2 heaping teaspoons, mix well. Shape into a ball and place in airtight container. Chill at least one hour. Before serving coat outside with parsley. Serve with bland crackers - pretty much anything works.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Two hints, you can press it into a mold, if you had like a Christmas tree shaped one, or a cactus, stuff like that. Also, I’ve found this is good spread on apples.
These keep for weeks in the fridge (just check the expiration date on the cream cheese - whatever that date is, is how long they’ll keep.
