I have to let you in on a little secret though, cheese truffles is just a fancy name for mini cheese balls.
Also, while they look fancy, these only take 15 minutes start to finish. 10 minutes if you are a super fast ninja style chopper.
Just made these to take to work tomorrow. We do a potluck for everyone’s birthday and i needed something different to bring. They are delicious and look wonderful on the platter. Thanks for sharing.
10 oz goat cheese
6 oz cream cheese
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons honey, plus extra for garnish
1 1/2 cups Fisher Nuts pecan chips, divided
1 cup diced dried cranberries
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
In a large bowl, beat goat cheese, cream cheese, cinnamon and honey until light and fluffy. Add 1/2 cup pecan chips, folding to combine. Set aside.
Line countertop with parchment paper. Toss together remaining pecan chips, dried cranberries and parsley in the center of the parchment paper.
Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out one round of cheese filling and toss in pecan mixture. Continue until all truffles have been rolled in coating. (Watch the video above to see how I do this.)
Refrigerate cheeseballs until ready to serve. You can make these up to three days before, just make sure and store them in an airtight container.
To Serve: Drizzle with honey, if desired. Serve with crackers, warm crostini or as is with a toothpick!
