    In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well blended. Mixture will be very thick. Place about 1/4 of the mixture on waxed paper, roll into a log, wrap tightly in Saran Wrap, and refrigerate. Continue with remaining mixture, to make about 4 logs. You may freeze by placing wrapped logs in a freezer bag.
