here is the official recipe for the gorgonzola cheese ball, which i want to share with you because it was utterly sumptuous.
1 (5.5 oz) container crumbled gorgonzola. other bleu would work well too.
1 package cream cheese, at room temp.
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped sweet nuts, either homemade or from a bag
in a bowl, mash together the cheeses until well combined and the lumps of gorgonzola are broken up. add in the cranberries and mix until well distributed, adding more if you please. line another small bowl with plastic wrap and put mixture in, and then form into a ball and refrigerate a few hours until firm. when firm, roll in the chopped nuts. place on a plate with plain crackers and spread knives and serve!
