Cranberry and Honey Goat Cheese Truffles

Hey friends! How’s your week going? I mentioned in Monday’s post that I made some goat cheese truffles for my book club, and was really happy with how they turned out.  I loved them so much, I just had to share the recipe with you guys!

These are a four ingredient, no cooking required appetizer that can be made in advance, so perfect for summer entertaining!  They are great on their own, or served with crackers or sliced baguette.  I did not have any apples lying around to try it out, but I also think they would be great with apple slices.

Cranberry & Honey Goat Cheese Truffles


  • 1 – 10 oz container plain goat cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 bunch chives (or green onions), finely diced
  • 2/3 cup dried dried cranberries, finely diced

Directions: Mix goat cheese and honey in a bowl until well combined. Roll into nickel sized balls (this should make about 15-20 depending on size). Mix together diced chives and cranberries on a plate or shallow dish. Roll each ball, one at a time, in chive/cranberry mixture until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy this appetizer as much as I have! While we are talking no cook appetizers, what are some of your favorites? My go to is a cheese board, but I always love discovering new favorites.

    1. Thanks! What kinds of honey do you use? I love the sweet/tangy combo of honey with goat cheese.

  1. I have all the stuff to make these in the fridge– #winningatlife. I love goat cheese everything!!

  2. Hmmm I’m not sure how I feel about the goat cheese 😅 but I’m always up for trying new food! Thanks for sharing!

    1. You could try it with cream cheese if you don’t like goat cheese, it just won’t be as tangy.

  3. These are absolutely stunning! I am always looking for easy apps and ideally ones that are small. Not sure how I haven’t thought of something like this before but I will 100% be adding this to my app making next time we have guests over 🙂
