Brie “Truffles”

Brie Truffles

Brie Truffles

I love brie. There are several classic ways to serve it and I have done them all. This is a fun twist. Brie is combined with cream cheese and butter until smooth and then rolled in fresh pumpernickel bread crumbs and placed in little paper cups. The effect is that the cheese looks like little cocoa coated chocolate truffles. Rich and melt in your mouth these “truffles” are sure to be a hit at your next party. Thanks to Carol Thompson for hosting the party where I made these.

Brie Truffles

8 oz. brie, room temperature- I remove the rind from the brie for a smoother texture.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 stick ( 4 0z.) butter, softened

2 c. fresh pumpernickel bread crumbs*

In food processor combine cheeses with butter until smooth.  Chill mixture 30 minutes or longer. With a small cookie scoop or teaspoon form mixture into small balls. Place crumbs in a bowl and roll the balls of cheese in the crumbs to coat. Place in small paper cups and chill until ready to serve. Makes 3-4 dozen.

* To make the crumbs just place torn up pumpernickel bread in a food processor and run until bread turns into crumbs.
