Active: 30 min

 

Yield: 14 truffles

 

Level: Easy

 

Ingredients

6 ounces double-smoked bacon, chopped fine

2 small shallots, minced 

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature 

4 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola, at room temperature 

1 1/2 cups finely crushed pretzels

2 tablespoons minced fresh chives 

Directions

Place the bacon in a medium skillet and heat over medium heat. Cook the bacon until almost entirely crispy, about 10 minutes. Add the shallots and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the bacon mixture into a medium bowl. Add the cream cheese and gorgonzola and mix well with a rubber spatula. Using a 1-tablespoon ice cream scoop, scoop little balls of the cheese mixture and roll them between your palms to smooth. Place on a plate, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

When ready to serve, allow the balls to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes. Mix together the pretzels and chives in a small bowl. Roll the truffles in the crushed pretzel mixture and serve.
