I have made these several times. They are quick, easy and everybody loves them. I preferred to cut the cinnamon back to 1 tsp. I don't drizzle with extra honey as they are already sweet enough and the drizzle would make them messy for a finger food. You can make as individual 'truffles' (I used a 1 tbsp. scoop) with a toothpick or as one large cheese ball with crackers and spreaders. One time I substituted the goat cheese for more cream cheese (since that is what I had on hand) and found it just as good.
