A cheese nibble is a lovely offering to begin seasonal gatherings & there are many ways to serve them. Break away from traditional shapes & try a batch of mini morsels. Olive-Gorgonzola Truffles are simple to prepare when using a cookie scoop to portion the mixture. Allow them to chill & roll in freshly chopped herbs for a bright & cheery finish. Accompany with an assortment of spring inspired crackers such as these beautiful butterflies & ready yourself for a round of compliments.
