Shred or cut Cheddar into small pieces and put into the large bowl of an electric mixer.
Add cream cheese, blue cheese, and butter; beat until blended.
Add garlic and beat until creamy.
Cover and chill cheese mixture for about 3 hours or until firm enough to shape into balls.
Divide in half and shape each half into a smooth ball; wrap airtight in clear plastic film, place in a plastic bag, and refrigerate or freeze until needed.
Allow frozen cheese balls to stand at room temperature, unwrapped, 3 or 4 hours before serving.
Sprinkle nuts on a piece of wax paper and roll each ball in about 1/3 cup of the nuts, pressing in lightly.
Serve with assorted crackers or wafers.
