Gussy up grapes with toasted almonds and a snappy blend of cheeses, cleverly coating each juicy fruit.
cups (8 oz.) slivered almonds
(8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
oz. Gorgonzola cheese or other blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
tablespoons chopped fresh chives or parsley
small red seedless grapes (about 9 oz.)
Heat oven to 350°F. Place almonds in single layer in shallow baking pan with sides. Bake at 350°F. for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once. Remove from pan; cool about 5 minutes. Finely chop almonds.
In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Gorgonzola cheese and chives; mix well. Wrap about 1 teaspoon cheese mixture around each grape to cover; roll in chopped almonds. Place in single layer in 13x9-inch pan. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours before serving.
To serve, if desired, arrange on serving platter in shape of grape cluster; garnish with parsley or grape leaves.
