100 g grated parmesan
salt
pepper
150 g Speck Alto Adige PGI
1 bunch of chives
20 savoury sticks

In a bowl, combine the cheese spread with the parmesan. Season with a pinch of salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper.

Transfer to the fridge for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, finely dice the Speck Alto Adige PGI, chop the chives and combine in a shallow plate.

Remove the cream cheese mixture from the fridge. Grease your hands with a little olive oil and shape a little of the cream cheese mixture into a walnut-sized ball.  Roll the ball in the Speck Alto Adige PGI and chives and thread onto a savoury stick.

Grease your hands again before shaping each ball and continue until the mixture is finished.

Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
