Recipe Type: Appetizer
Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ounces goat cheese*, room temperature
  • A small bunch green or red grapes
  • 2 ounce package chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese & goat cheese. {With a hand mixer is the easiest way. If the mixture is too stiff, you can add a splash of milk or a tablespoon or two of Greek yogurt.}
  2. Coat each grape in about a teaspoon of cheese mixture. {This part is messy, recruit a friend & cut your work/mess in half.} Roll each ball in walnuts.
  3. Refrigerate to set, then serve with toothpicks or skewers.
  4. Makes about 15. Double recipe for larger batch.
Notes
*I know several of you are not goat cheese fans and often ask for substitutions. Mascarpone would work as a good substitute in this case, or plain cream cheese would be just fine as well.

  1. Very nice. Had trouble keeping cheese mix on grapes. However, mixed more goats cheese to the mix to thicken, worked very well then.
