This can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. Don't skip rolling the cheese ball in the chopped pecans. It really adds tons of great flavor to the cheese ball. We ate this with Wheat Thins Veggie Chips. We discovered the chips on a Southwest flight and went straight to the grocery store to stock up on them. If you don't want to use the Wheat Thins Toasted Veggie Chips for some crazy reason, any cracker will work fine.
