Directions

  1. Grind wasabi peas in a food processor to pebble and sand texture (or place peas in a 1-quart freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin). Place in a shallow pan.
  2. Mix cream cheese, chives, soy and pepper with a fork until well-blended. (Peas and cream cheese mixture can be covered and refrigerated for 2 days.)
  3. About 30 minutes before serving, use a 1 tsp. measuring spoon to drop cheese mixture into the pan of wasabi peas; roll into balls, coating each with ground peas. Place on a serving platter.

Really rich and hard to eat more than one. Not spicy enough. I won't make this again.
