Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles
Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles: these festive mini cheese balls only take 15 minutes and are loaded with creamy goat cheese, cranberries and crunchy pecans!
Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles. That’s right, truffles made of cheese.
Are you feeling fancy yet?? I know I am and so were all of my guests while we were stuffing our faces at my Christmas party last weekend!
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.
Thankfully Fisher Nuts sells Pecan Chips, so that’s one less thing we have to worry about chopping.
I love their little bags for when I only need a handful of nuts and their large stand-up bags to keep around for snacking or for adding to cookies.
The big stand-up bags are not only built for connivence, but they also have resealable tops.
They stay fresh for a really long time in the pantry after being opened!
This is my second year partnering with Fisher Nuts and I am so excited to be bringing you more amazing nut centric recipes.
You can find more great recipes featuring pecans, almonds and walnuts on FisherNuts.com!
Fisher Nuts always have a place in my pantry because their nuts are fresh out of their shells and have zero preservatives and are non-GMO Project Verified.
Bonus: you can now find Fisher Nuts on amazon!
These Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles are made with a mixture of goat cheese and cream cheese.
The cream cheese is just there as a filler cheese to save you money. You can’t taste it, the goat cheese is definitely still the main cheese flavor.
Then we add some honey, a little cinnamon and some pecans. Whip it together and then use a cookie scoop to easily create the truffle ball shape without making a mess.
To finish them off, we roll them in more pecans, craisins and minced parsley.
And if you are feeling extra fancy, like me, you drizzle them with a little honey before serving.Feel free to play around with the recipe with what you have on hand or to include your favorite fruit and nuts.
These cheese truffles would also be great with diced almonds, walnuts, dried cherries or apricots!
