Honey Cheese Balls - Honey Recipes By Manawa Honey NZ, Ruatahuna, Te Urewera, New Zealand

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons Tawari Honey
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts of your choice – pecans, walnuts and cashews are our choice
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
  • 125g crumbled feta cheese
  • 125g cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Gruyere or strong tasty cheese, grated
  • Lollipop sticks

Directions

Mix the nuts and cranberries on a shallow dish and set aside.

In a food processor, add the feta, cream cheese, Gruyere, and Tawari Honey. Pulse until well combined.

Use your hands to form tablespoon size balls and roll in the cranberry/pecan mixture.

Place on baking paper and repeat with the rest of the cheese mixture. Top each ball with a lollipop stick and place in the fridge for an hour or so to firm up. Enjoy!

Notes

You can use Pua-a-Tane Wild Flower Honey instead of Tawari Honey in this recipe but avoid strong-flavoured honeys as they will tend to overpower the taste of the cheese and nuts.
