Cheese plates and salads might be the place that most folks are used to seeing soft goat cheese, but it's an ingredient that's equally at home in the world of sweets. It makes a killer cheesecake, amazing brownies, and a dreamy filling for danishes. And these Chocolate and Black Pepper Goat Cheese Truffles from Joy the Baker Cookbook are not only out of this world but super simple.

Joy Wilson works soft goat cheese, dark chocolate, coarsely ground black pepper, and flaky sea salt into these petite truffles, rolling them in bitter cocoa powder to finish. They aren't over the top sweet, but they're plenty chocolaty. And they have just right amount of goat-y goodness both flavor-wise and in that great creamy-crumbly quality that we love in goat cheese.
