APPETIZER!

For an appetizer that is AMAZING, easy and a sure-fire hit, you can NOT go wrong with Bleu Cheese and Grape Truffles. Oh-so-good! It’s a perfect flavor burst -- a really hip party in your mouth. I’ve adapted this recipe from Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen. I substituted Cognac for Port (merely because it was more handy) and I changed the proportion of the cheeses! Try it. You’ll like it.

Bleu Cheese and Grape Truffles

(For 10-15 people)
6 oz softened bleu cheese
6 oz cream cheese
1 tbs cognac or port
1 cup very finely chopped pistachios (use a food processor)
1 bunch of green seedless grapes

Mix the two cheeses and the cognac in a mixing bowl until completely mixed. Mold the cheese around the grape so that it completely covers the skin (be careful to not use too much cheese; it can be overpowering). Then roll the cheese covered grapes in the finely chopped pistachios until the cheese is barely visible. Chill the grapes for about 45 minutes before serving. Then, your guests will love you.
