Directions

  1. In a bowl, using a fork, mix the chevre, green onions, pepper and half of the chopped herbs (2 tablespoons) until the mixture is smooth. Using two spoons, portion cheese mixture into 10 mL (2 tablespoon) balls, rolling them in the palm of your hands. Roll 8 balls in the chopped nuts and place on a service platter. Using a small sifter, sprinkle paprika on 8 other cheese balls. Serve the remaining cheese truffles as they are or roll them in the remaining chopped herbs. Serve as an appetizer on tooth picks.

Fabulous! I used about 1/8 teas of ground black pepper, because that's what I had. My Trader Joes chopped pecans were too big and almond meal was too powdery but worked; next time I'll chop almonds or pecans to an intermediary texture. Wet your hands a bit to form the balls. This recipe is a keeper. Yum!

I really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make, yet quite classy. I tried them with basil and thyme, and GREATLY preferred the thyme. Just be aware that this can be quite messy - you'll end up with goat cheese all over your hands and spoon!

These were great. I used fresh herbs (sage, oregano, basil) on half and nuts on the other half. Easy to make and turned out very impressive. Thanks for the recipe.
