Cheese Truffles: I looked at Mom's recipe and a few from Kraft Food & Family and made this one:

1 8 oz. package cream cheese
2 c. grated colby jack
1 T. dijon mustard
2 chopped green onions, greens and whites separated
1 T. green chilis
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Mix cream cheese, colby jack and mustard in mixer until smooth. Divide in half. Add green onion whites to one half and green chilis to the other. Refrigerate several hours. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and roll half in green onion tops and half in walnuts. Makes about 16.
