Are you preparing for holiday gatherings or planning a New Year's Eve party? This fresh, tasty and easy recipe will help you prepare a unique crowd pleaser!
Makes 12 appetizers
- 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, softened
- 2 ounces light cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
- 12 seedless grapes
In a medium bowl, mix together the goat cheese and cream cheese. In a small bowl, mix together the almonds and chives. Use a teaspoon to scoop a bit of the cheese mixture into your hand; form it into a ball, and then press the grape into the cheese, pressing it into place to cover the grape completely. (This is a bit messy, but not at all difficult.) Repeat with the remaining grapes and cheese mixture. Roll each cheese-covered grape in the chive-almond mixture to coat lightly. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to set the cheese.
