DIRECTIONS

  • Mash the cream and bleu cheese in a bowl until they are combined well.
  • Add the port.
  • Mix until all ingredients are very well combined.
  • Chill the cheese mixture for about an hour or two.
  • Using a regular spoon, scoop some cheese into the bowl of the spoon and using a grape, scrape the cheese out of the spoon.
  • Press the cheese around the grape and roll in your hands to completely cover it well.
  • Roll the cheese-covered grape in the ground nuts.
  • Continue with remaining grapes.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Note: if you have leftover cheese, you can mix it with a few chopped nuts and some chopped grapes to make a delicious spread, too.
