Cranberry Pecan Goat Cheese Truffles

Pecan Cranberry goat cheese truffles: festive ball mini cheese takes only 15 minutes and loaded with creamy goat cheese, cranberries and crunchy pecans!

This Pecan Cranberry goat cheese truffles made with a mixture of goat cheese and cream cheese.


Cream cheese is simply there as a filler of cheese to save money. You can’t feel it, goat cheese is definitely still the flavor of the cheese.

Then we add a bit of honey, cinnamon and Pecans some. Whip it together and then use a cookie scoop to easily create form ball truffles without making a mess.
To finish it off, we roll them more pecans, craisins and chopped parsley.
