Soooooo. You should make this.

I know. I say that all the time. BUT.

I really mean it. Really really.

I’d have to say this is in the top ten of things I’ve ever made. Yeah. For serious. Which is like… the top ten in a million things. Big deal.

And it totally took me by surprise. Gave me a big, fat punch of bewilderment square in the face.

I mean, I expected it to taste good. Obviously. But like… not THAT good.

My grandma always loved this little swiss almond cheese spread that came in a plastic container, and my mom still often buys it to serve with snacks and appetizers. It’s delicious smeared on crackers, but I decided it would be more delicious if someone combined a ton of toasted almonds with a few plentiful thousand handfuls of cheese.

I was right.

Happy happy joy joy.

I mean, just look at that hot, melty mess down there. I can’t even tell you how freaking good this is.

NOW MAKE IT FOR THE SUPER BOWL! Orrrr… just because you are awesome.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, combine cream cheese, mascarpone, salt, pepper, nutmeg, parmesan and 1/2 cup almonds. Mix with a spoon to combine, then press into a baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining almonds. Serve with crackers and pita chips!
  • Note: you can use low-fat cream cheese since the mascarpone has fat in it; not sure about using fat-free.
