   Helpful hints:  Freeze cheese balls at least a few
   hours before baking. Freezing allows cheese to harden
   so balls hold their shape in the oven. Unbaked cheese
   balls may be kept in the freezer in a tightly covered
   container for up to 2 weeks.
   
   VT’s note:  These spicy little morsels are so easy to
   assemble that making them is almost as much fun as
   eating them!  Mix them up, freeze and they're ready
   when you are. Posted by Lisa Greenwood
