These delicious morsels are a wonderfully healthy treat for after school or weekends. These ones do contain nuts, which rules them out of most school lunch boxes.
1/3 cup mixed nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, cashews and pistachios
450g soft goat’s cheese
1 large bunch (about 20) grapes, picked
- Place the nuts in a food processor. Process until finely ground. Tip into a shallow bowl.
- Break up the goat’s cheese into a bowl. Use a spoon or clean fingers to scoop up about 1 tbs of goat’s cheese and press it around a grape to cover. Once covered, roll between your fingers to create a ball. Roll the ball in the nut mixture, then place on a serving tray. Repeat using remaining grapes, goat’s cheese and nuts.
- Place the grape balls in the fridge for about 20 minutes to firm up a little, before serving.
Tips and notes
- Keep unused grape balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Mix up the colours by using a combination of red and green grapes.
- Not a fan of goat’s cheese? You can use softened Philadelphia cheese, instead.
