Bittersweet Cheese Truffle
ounces French Mimolette, aged (dry) Jack, and/or white cheddar cheese
ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
tablespoons finely chopped dried mango, dried apricot, or finely chopped pistachio nuts
- Cut cheese into bite-size chunks; set aside.
- In a heavy small saucepan melt chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Dip each cheese piece into chocolate, coating bottom half of cheese. Allow excess chocolate to drip off. Sprinkle with chopped dried fruit or pistachio nuts. Place each piece in a paper candy cup. Chill, uncovered, 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. (If not serving immediately, place chocolate-dipped cheese in covered containers and store in the refrigerator up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.) Makes 1-1/2 to 2 dozen pieces.
