Brandied Butter-Cheese Spread Recipe

Grate 1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese and 1/2 pound sharp processed cheddar cheese food into a bowl. Blend in one package (8 ounces) of cream cheese and 1/2 cup (1 stick) of soft butter. Then work in 1/4 cup of brandy, 1 teaspoon of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, and 6 drops of hot pepper sauce and blend the mixture until it's smooth. Spoon into brandy snifters, parfait glasses, or other festive containers and refrigerate until "gifting" time. Men, in particular, seem to go for the curry-and-brandy flavor that makes this spread unique.
