The ingredients you’ll need for these Pistachio Truffles:

With just three ingredients, these easy appetizers come together quickly.  I start with large, red “globe” grapes. These are popular during the holidays, but if you cannot find the “globe” variety, standard red seedless grapes will do. Next, you’ll need pistachios – you can purchase shelled or un-shelled. You’ll also need a savory, creamy cheese to go over the grapes.  I used Garlic and Fine Herbs Boursin Cheese. It adds a nice, creamy, savory texture that pairs well with the sweetness of the grape inside, along with the crunch of the pistachios.

How to assemble:

In order for the cheese to stick to the grapes, I made sure to rinse, and then dry the grapes with paper towels.  This made the process of assembling the appetizers really easy.  For the larger globe grapes I used about a 1/2 Tbsp of cheese per grape. You simply just need to cover the outside of the grape on all sides. Once I had the cheese on the outside of the grape, I then pierced the tops of the grapes with a toothpick, and then gently rolled them in chopped pistachios.  Voila!

Pair these delicious pistachio truffles with crackers, fruit and any other cheeses or cheese spreads that you enjoy.  Not only will these make a pretty appetizer tray for your cocktail hour, but your guests will be wonderfully surprised as to what they discover inside these amazing truffles.  These are also great to bring to a gathering or party, or serve to friends coming over for a glass of wine.
