Fig and Sriracha Blue Cheese Truffles



When I had the idea to to make these I thought they might be ok, or just good, whatever.




This is one of those times that I underestimated myself.

If you like blue cheese, you will love these. The spiciness from the Sriracha combined with the salty edge you get from the cheese – and a teensy tiny bit of sweetness from the figs is off the charts delicious.


The perfect sweet/savory combo.  I’m sure you could make it one big fat cheeseball if you wanted to.

Speaking of sweet/savory – have you had a chance to make my Candied Jalapenos? Those are the epitome of sweet/savory/spicy, and one of my favorite things to make.


Here’s your printable-

Fig and Sriracha Blue Cheese Truffles
