Serving as a simple appetizer or snack are these five-ingredient goat cheese balls from the Amy in the Kitchen blog. The recipe calls for a mix of goat and cream cheese, chopped pecans, minced mint leaves and a handful of dried cranberries. In terms of texture and flavor, the creamy base of cheese helps to hold everything together, while the crunchy coating of nuts, mint leaves and berries provides a refreshing blend of flavors that's earthy, tangy and sweet. Considering that these goat cheese balls only call for a few ingredients, this is an especially great treat to make if you have some leftover ingredients from another cooking recipe.

For serving these perfect party snacks, it's suggested that these Goat Cheese Truffles be paired with other cheeses, fruits and crackers.
