Use two 8 oz blocks of cream cheese softened (microwave cream cheese in a covered dish - sheet of paper towel works best - at 30 second intervals until cream cheese is very soft and smooth, use a spatula to smooth out) add mix. Mix well. Line a small bowl with Saran/plastic wrap with excess over edges of bowl. Place cranberry walnut mixture in bowl, pack down with spatula, smooth top. Fold plastic wrap over top. Refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours. Remove bowl from refrigerator, with plastic wrap in place, flip mixture out and shape into ball shape. Remove plastic wrap.

Serve with apple slices, celery sticks, wheat thins, Graham cracker sticks, vanilla wafers or animal crackers.
