Easy to make, very rich. I would use more bacon next time to get a good coating.

These are perfect appetizers -- the flavors blend beautifully. Made them with nonfat cream cheese and reduced fat blue cheese and my guests never noticed. Be sure to work quickly when rolling the balls out; the cheese has a tendency to get soft very quickly. Next time I might work with half the cheese at a time. But will definitely make again.

Served at two different parties and our guests raved about them both times.

We have brought these to two different dinner functions and everyone raved over them. We ran out quickly both times and will make a double batch going forward. We love this recipe!
