Just before serving, combine the remaining cup of pecans, dried cranberries, and two tablespoons of chives on a flat surface or cutting board. Unwrap the ball and roll in cranberry pecan mixture.

Serve this million dollar appetizer with crackers, pita chips, pretzels, carrots or celery.

Your family will love the million dollar appetizer. By the way, you don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving!
