Goat Cheese Truffles

I have often made these as hors d’oeuvres, they make great make-ahead nibble.


  • Makes about 36 truffles

  • 9 oz fresh goat cheese

  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh chives

  • ½ cup finely chopped pistachios

  • 3 Tbsp finely crushed pink peppercorns mixed with 3 Tbsp finely chopped parsley


  • 1.

    To portion goat cheese, divided goat cheese into 2 pieces and, with damp hands, roll into 2 logs. Cut each log into 18 pieces and shape goat cheese into balls.

  • 2.

    Arrange chives, pistachios and pink peppercorn/parsley mixture each into 3 small bowls. Roll goat cheese “truffles” into choice of coatings and place on a baking tray or plate. Chill until ready to serve.


These truffles should be smaller than normal-size chocolate truffles (can only eat so much cheese!).
