Instructions
Candy the Pecans
  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Then add your chopped pecans and sugar. Toast until they begin to darken slightly then remove from heat.
Balsamic Glaze
  1. In a sauce pan combine the sugar and balsamic vinegar. Place over medium heat and reduce to a syrup. Should take about 10 minutes Stir occasionally throughout the cooking process to prevent burning. Keep in mind the glaze will thicken slightly when cooled. Pour into a container with a lid for storage while still warm.
Make the Cheese Ball
  1. using a hand or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese balsamic glaze and powdered sugar until smooth. Using a spatula, gently fold in the pecans, and blue cheese crumbles. Form your cheese into a ball, loaf or use an adjustable food ring as I did. Place it into the refrigerator to set for an hour.
  2. Top with fresh strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic glaze before serving. Enjoy!
