Some time this week a magical idea popped in to my head to make TRUFFLES! I’ve never even thought about making them before but after a quick google search I just had to see if they were as easy as they sounded to make.
The first batch I’ve made (I’ll be making more!!) were Green Tea and White Chocolate flavour.
So simple, all you need is
100g soft cream cheese
175g icing sugar
250 white chocolate
and then nuts or something similar to coat them (in the end I actually opted for ground almonds instead of the chopped nuts for this recipe!)
So, melt the chocolate….
Plonk in the cream cheese….
Then the icing sugar……
Mix it all together until smooth…..
Add any extra flavour (you could leave it at just white chocolate, or add a splash of rum if you made dark choc ones or nuts or anything really!)….
Mix it altogether….
then once it’s mixed just pop it in the fridge for about an hour….
Pour your coating into a bowl (you could use coco dust, chopped nuts, icing sugar, chocolate vermicelli….)
Roll into small balls…..
Cover in the coating….
I have these little tubs from some microwave tapas meals that are going to be ideal to store them in and give to a few people as presents….
So there we go, an amazingly simple recipe and method! I’m going to try another batch using chocolate spread and cream cheese and cover with nuts and also try the recipe using actual cream instead of cream cheese. Addictive.
They are a tad too sweet for my taste too so I really want to experiment with more and more flavours!!
