1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
10 ounces extra sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup chopped walnuts
Thoroughly mix together the softened cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and onion soup mix in a bowl. Chill in refrigerator for about 1/2 hour to firm up, if necessary. Form the mixture into a ball or log, and press the outside with walnuts.
Serve on an appetizer tray or a decorative plate surrounded by assorted crackers.
