These Blue Cheese Truffles Are The Perfect Start To A Home Cooked Valentine’s Dinner

If you’re planning on spending Valentine’s Day at home, it’s the perfect excuse to go a bit fancy with your home cooking, whether you’re preparing dinner just for two (or more). Instead of the usual cheese platter, start the evening with some sparkling wine and these pretty balls of blue cheese coated with pistachios. If you find blue cheese a bit too pungent, you can try goat cheese instead.
