Depending on your constitution, the thought of Goat Cheese Truffles might make you drool, or it might turn your stomach a little. I admit the name might be part of the problem--who wants to think about goaty goats when they're eating delicious chocolate? Better, instead, to focus on the end product: a rich, fudgy truffle that combines soft, mild goat cheese with bittersweet chocolate, dried cranberries, and a sprinkling of toasted pistachios. The goat cheese adds a tangy flavor (similar to cream cheese), while all the mix-ins keep the goat cheese from being too overwhelming. Don't let the goatiness dissuade you. These truffles are winners.
