Perpetual Goatstopper Cheese Bite

Perpetual Goatstopper Cheese Bite

Perry Soulos
This delectable "Perfect Bite" of Redwood Hill Farm Chèvre with fruit flavored cereal and candied ginger was the winning recipe at the 2014 Cheesemonger Invitational.


  • 8 oz Redwood Hill Farm Fresh Chèvre
  • 2 oz candied ginger finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups Burstin' Berry Poppin' Pebbles or your favorite fruit flavored cereal or chopped nuts
  • 1 bunch red seedless grapes


  • Wash and de-stem red grapes.
  • In large zip-lock bag combine the chopped candied ginger and the cereal. Crunch inside bag until desired texture is found and flavors are combined. (I prefer leaving the mix a little coarser so they give a good crunch in the finished truffle.)
  • Using hands (I wear gloves) pinch off a small amount (just under 1/2 oz) of Redwood Hill Farm's Fresh Plain Chevre, slightly flatten out to make a small indentation for the grape.
  • Place grape in center of goat cheese and work the cheese around the outer coating of the grape, creating a smooth and even coating surrounding the entire grape.
  • Place the "naked" truffles on a flat resting tray until you finish coating all the grapes you are going to do for your event.
  • Take "naked" truffles and gently roll them in ginger and cereal mixture until evenly coated, transfer to your serving dish after each truffle is "seasoned". Enjoy!
