2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 pkg. (3 oz.) Bacon Bits
2 Tbsp. pimiento strips
Beat cheeses and dressing with mixer until blended. Add onions and pepper; mix well. Refrigerate several hours. Form into football shape on serving plate; coat with bacon bits. Add pimento strips for "lacing." Serve with crackers.
I also really like these - they remind me of rice crispy treats...only chocolate.
