Mascarpone Bouchees (Mini Cheese Balls)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Rachell Rowand

Delightful bite-size cheese balls. This is just a basic cheese ball--you can add whatever you like to the recipe to spice it up to make it not so ordinary. Just omit the chives and add 1/4 cup of whatever you like. I like to put in green olives sometimes and sometimes a mix of bacon and cheddar--it just depends on what you're in the mood for. Hope you enjoy.

I really didn't want to share these with anyone, but I did. I took a double recipe with me to a family gathering and I probably should have brought twice as many. The flavors and textures are just right!
