When it comes to people’s birthdays I always produce the goods and bake a batch of brownies. For my brothers birthday I wanted to do something else and found a few different recipes for Oreo Truffles. I also noted how they were a lot easier to make as you don’t even need to turn the oven on – win.
100g cream cheese
1. Take out your anger on some biscuits. I’ve put Oreos above but I ended up buying the Tesco own version as they were helllaaa cheaper, and I’m poor AF. You can either wack these into your food processor or double bag them in sandwich bags and beat the hell out of them.
2. Take 100g of cream cheese, again I used Tesco own as it’s cheap and you don’t want it to taste like cream cheese anyway, so who cares which one you use? I used a large mixing bowl, added the cream cheese and then about 80% of the crushed biscuits, before mixing them together. At this stage, also wack in some vanilla essence, I have no idea how much I added as I didn’t measure it, suppose it depends how much you like vanilla.
3. You’ll need to be prepared to get messy for this, as you’ll take the mixture and roll it into balls in your hand. They can be any size you want, but obviously the smaller they are, the more you’ll be able to make. I then put these onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and popped them in the fridge for an hour.
4. Once they’ve had time to stiffen up in the fridge, they’re ready to be covered in chocolate. I melted mine by putting it in the microwave for 2 minutes, but you can do it over a pan too. Take each ball and roll it around in the chocolate until it’s covered. I used fork to transfer it from the bowl and back to the tray.
5. When you have a tray full of chocolate covered balls, this is where the 20% of crushed biscuit comes in handy. Whilst they are still wet, throw the biscuit over the balls and leave in the fridge to set. I left mine overnight and then transferred them to a plastic tub – done.
Thats it, done. Enjoy!
