I've been using this exact recipe for years now. I have to make it every year at Christmas or I receive a lot of complaints! To make them more festive I alternate rolling the truffles in sweet paprika, dried parsley flakes, almond slivers and finely shredded white cheddar. Makes a nice green, red, and white plate that way. You can leave out the nuts entirely if allergies are an issue. If you don't have time to roll all the little balls you can also make one large log rolled in your chosen topping and put it out with a spreading knife.
This made for a great presentation, TRUE!
And were SO easy to do!
My center truffle, looked like Ferraro Roche!
Used dried parsley, drived chives, sweet paprika....recipe MADE MY DAY!
These were an absolute hit on Christmas Eve. I made the red, white and green coatings for them. I will be definately making these little gems again and again. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe.
Very good.Will add more red pepper flakes next time. Thank you for sharing this!
These are OK, taste like a standard cheese ball. Serving bit size cheese balls is an interesting idea, but it seemed to confuse people a little and they weren't sure how they were supposed to eat them (spread on a cracker, pop in mouth?)
The roasted red pepper is a great addition to this basic cheese ball recipe. The individual mini size is perfect for my finger food / appetizer parties. I offered these with crackers and served along side Gorgonzola and Cream Cheese Balls. It's a great alternative to plain cheese and crackers.
These really are amazing! I didn't have time to chill it between mixing and shaping them, but they worked just fine! They seemed like they'd be a lot more work than they were, it went pretty quick! I served them at a potluck with crackers and everyone raved! They're really pretty too! Thank you so much!
