When happy with the mixture consistency break off pieces of mixture and roll by hand into the desired size and set aside.
Place the rolling mixture into separate shallow bowls – one with the paprika and one with the nuts. Now take your cheese balls and roll in your favorite coating until well covered, then place the balls on your serving plate. See notes below for more coating ideas.
Alternative coatings for your balls could be dried fruit pieces like apricot or cranberry. You could also use your favorite dried herbs or nuts.
