  • Mix cream cheese, chives, soy and pepper with a fork until well-blended. (Peas and cream cheese mixture can be covered and refrigerated for 2 days.)

  • About 30 minutes before serving, use a 1 tsp. measuring spoon to drop cheese mixture into the pan of wasabi peas; roll into balls, coating each with ground peas. Place on a serving platter.

These are loved or hated no middle ground. Took to a party and it was amusing to watch. Doubled the recipe - super easy to make. I'll be doing this again for sure. May even just do it for a snack. I was one of the many that loved them! Read More

Maybe would have been better with onion instead of the chives. To me they made it too stringy. Especially when left in fridge for a couple of hours also the wasabi peas went soft. This would be a recipe you need to eat once made. Read More
