Cheese should be celebrated it all shapes and sizes. This three-ingredient recipe for Roquefort Balls with Raisins and Hazelnuts is decadent and perfect for a holiday party or special occasion. They are bite-size morsels that will make your mouth jump for joy. It takes 50 minutes to prepare these delicious appetizers that have a mere 50 calories per serving. All you need to make 20 of these tasty treats are raisins, Roquefort cheese, and hazelnuts.

Ingredients

  • 20 raisins (white)
  • 200 grams roquefort cheese (Papillon Revelation)
  • 40 grams hazelnuts (powdered)

Directions

  1. In a frying pan, roast the hazelnut powder for 3 to 4 minutes. Be careful, the powder burns very quickly.
  2. Let cool.
  3. Crush the Roquefort with a fork.
  4. Coat the raisins with Roquefort by gently pressing the cheese until it sticks to raisins.
  5. Roll the balls in the hazelnut powder, put a skewer in the center.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. I use Papillon Revelation Roquefort because I find it creamier and softer, and it's a perfect match for this recipe.

These are very creamy and seem to melt in your mouth when you eat them. I like to make some with raisins and some with cranberries.
