Directions for: Cheese "Truffles" with Grapes


3 cup (750 mL) shredded Black DIamond Medium Cheddar Cheese

1 pkg (8 oz/250 g) cream cheese, softened

2 Tbsp (30 mL) 10% cream or tawny port wine

¼ tsp (1 mL) dry mustard

¼ tsp (1 mL) hot pepper sauce

40 seedless green or red grapes

1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped toasted pecans or Brazil nuts

2 Tbsp (30 mL) minced fresh chives or parsley


1. In a food processor, beat Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, cream, mustard and hot sauce until smooth. Refrigerate until firm yet pliable, about 45 minutes.

2. In a pie plate or other shallow dish, combine nuts and chives. Form cheese mixture into 1 tbsp (15 mL) balls; insert a grape into each and roll in nut mixture to coat. Refrigerate on a waxed paper-lined tray until firm, about 1 hour. Serve cold or at room temperature.
