Tangy cheese mixed with sweet grapes. Who knew!?
Prep Time20 mins
Total Time20 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 people


  • 1 C chopped nuts pecans or almonds work best, but use whatever you like best!
  • 1 8-oz package cream cheese softened
  • 2 oz Gorgonzola cheese crumbled
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh chives or parsley
  • 48 small red grapes


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pecans (or almonds) in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until fragrant. Careful not to burn! Once cool, finely chop the nuts. (I use a food processor and then toss in the sieve to sift out the "dust")
  • In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Gorgonzola cheese and chives. Mix until well combined.
  • With your hands (this gets a bit messy!) wrap about 1-2 teaspoons of cheese mixture around each grape to cover. 
  • Roll in chopped nuts.
  • Place in single layer, and cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours before serving.
