Soft Cheese with Sweet Chilli / Stilton & Walnut

I love soft cheese such as Boursin but I also try and keep packs of plain soft cheese in the fridge for occasions where I feel like whipping up a cheesecake, or have with crushed raspberries & meringue. I also like to mix it with various flavours to make a soft flavoured cheese that is better than the bought ones (except the very expensive ones).


The flavours I made this time were:


Sweet Chilli


Tablespoon of sliced sweet pickled chillies, finely chopped
Pack of full fat soft cheese (Philadelphia or similar)


Mix the chillies into the cheese.
Line a ramekin dish with a large piece of clingfilm so that it hangs over the edges.
Fill the ramekin with the cheese mixture & wrap with the clingfilm from around the edge.
Refrigerate until firm.
When firm remove the clingfilm and roll in chopped herbs mixed with a few crushed chilli flakes

Stilton & Walnut


Big chunk of stilton, crumbled
Handful of walnuts, chopped

Pack of full fat soft cheese (Philadelphia or similar)

Mix the stilton and walnuts into the cheese
Line a ramekin dish with a large piece of clingfilm so that it hangs over the edges.
Fill the ramekin with the cheese mixture & wrap with the clingfilm from around the edge.
Refrigerate until firm.
When firm remove the clingfilm and roll in finely chopped walnuts
