Gorgonzola Truffles

These are tasty and easy to make.  It is a nice recipe because you can roll these truffles in just about anything you want - nuts, spices, bacon, etc. 

4 ounces cream cheese, softened 
4 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese 
1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 
1/4 teaspoon black pepper 

Garnish:  Your choice!  Add any of the following, or make your own variation: 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 1 cup sesame seeds, 1/ 4 cup paprika, 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives....

Beat first 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined.  Cover tightly, and chill at least 1 hour or until firm (up to 3 days).
Next, roll the cheese mixture into 3/4-inch-round balls.  Roll each ball in preferred garnish.  Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.  If chilled, let stand 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with crackers and/or fruit slices.
Tips - Another change you can make is with the cheese - I've used both goat cheese and blue cheese instead.  Enjoy!
