A savoury twist on truffles. Can be made the day before.
1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds
1⁄4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
3 tbsp milk
1 - 2 tsp3 Onion Dip Mix, or Epicure’s Guacamole Dip Mix
30 seedless grapes
- Place almonds in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Remove from processor.
- Place cream cheese, milk and 3 Onion Dip Mix into food processor. Whirl until smooth. It should have a creamy but not runny consistency. Scrape into a bowl.
- Working with one grape at a time, dip into cheese mixture, then roll in nuts. (Tip: pierce grape with a toothpick, then swirl in cheese mixture.) Once all grapes are coated, place on a plate and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, until chilled.
