Chocolate Hazelnut Goat Cheese Spread

Last year on the Months of Edible Celebrations Picnic Game, I posted a recipe for a Green Salad with Goat Cheese, Cocoa Nibs with a Chocolate Hazelnut Vinaigrette. At the end of the post I also added a Chocolate Hazelnut Goat Cheese Spread that would be great on a baguette to accompany the salad. Several people didn't scroll that far, so I thought I'd repost the recipe as a separate entry--a year later! This Chocolate Hazelnut Goat Cheese spread is perfect on crackers, too! And, it's so easy!

Chocolate Hazelnut Goat Cheese Spread

2 1/2  ounces dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
4  Tbsp chopped hazelnuts, toasted
1   8 ounce goat cheese log

Combine chocolate and hazelnuts in food processor and pulse until chocolate and nuts are finely ground. Don't over process. It's nice to have some texture!
Roll goat cheese log in mixture, pressing to coat all sides. 
(Moisten cheese with damp hands if mixture doesn't stick)

Add a knife to your picnic basket and use as a 'cheese' spread at the picnic!

Hey Janet!

I do remember that spread. I'm so glad you reposted it though. As you know, August is National Goat Cheese Month, I'll be sure to share this!!!

Thanks for sharing...
