These are not your mother's cheese balls. First, they're made with goat cheese and shaped into bite-size balls, making them super easy to serve and eat. Also, they're rolled in a variety of tasty toppings: wasabi-coated peas, crushed gingersnaps, granola, and a Parmesan-fennel seed mixture.


How to Make It

Grind the peas in a food processor or crush them in a resealable plastic bag. Spread the crumbs on a plate. Repeat these steps for the granola, then the gingersnaps. Combine the Parmesan and fennel on another plate.

Shape the cheese into balls, working with about 1 rounded tablespoon at a time. Roll the balls in the coatings.

In Advance: Roll the cheese into balls and refrigerate them, uncoated, for up to 24 hours. Roll the balls in the coatings no more than 1 hour before the party.
