Grape and Blue Cheese Truffles

Grape and Blue Cheese Truffles

this is a wonderful versatile appy... you could also use goat cheese or just creame cheese... toasted almonds, pine nuts, walnuts or hazelnuts...

4 ounces cream cheese -- softened
9 ounces blue cheese -- softened
3 tablespoons port wine
36 seedless red and green grapes
1 1/2 cups pistachio nuts -- ground
handy chopper

Mash the cheeses together in a bowl until combined. Mix in the port until
blended. If you chill the mixture for 15-30 minutes after blending, it
will be easier to work with.

Grab a bit of the cheese mixture in one hand and a grape in the other.
Roll the two together until the grape is completely covered by the cheese.
Roll the result in the ground pistachios.
Top with goat cheese.

Chill until ready to serve.
