Oyster Cheese Appetizer Log

You can make these holiday tradition cheese logs ahead, then freeze them for when you're expecting company or need to take food to someone's home. The blend of smoked oysters, chili powder, nuts and cream cheese tastes good-even people who don't like oysters may enjoy this interesting appetizer.
