1 bunch of chives
20 savoury sticks

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.
