Christmas Pudding Truffles

December 6, 2013

A lovely friend of mine organised a Christmas Craft Evening at her Church last week, and I had a brilliant evening making all kinds of crafts, and Christmas goodies, which I am going to share with you!

First up-Christmas Pudding Truffles.
Unfortunately we ate them all before I remembered to take a picture, but I found this one after a quick Google search, and they looked something like this:

They look very cute, and would make an ideal present for a teacher or neighbour πŸ™‚

This is what you need to make 5 (scale up appropriately for the number you want to eat make):

  • 4 Oreo cookies
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • white chocolate
  • decorations-I think you can buy holly leaf and berry sprinkles, which is what we had, or you can cut out the shapes from sugar paste, or you could just use a snip of glade cherry and forget about the leaves!

This is what you do:

  • Put the cookies in a plastic sandwich bag, and bash ’em up good and proper with a rolling pin-the more chunks you leave, the crunchier your truffle will be, so bash away as much or as little you like
  • Mix the cookie smash with the cream cheese in a bowl. Keep mixing, and keep the faith, it will come together
  • Roll into balls using your hands
  • Melt your white chocolate and dollop a small bit on top
  • Add you leaves/berry decorations and chill in the fridge

I am reliably informed they will last up to a week in the fridge.

Could these be any easier?!
NO. Go forth and spread Christmas Cheer πŸ™‚

    Thank you for crediting my photo. My Christmas Pudding Truffles are a little more time-consuming to make but do use up leftover Christmas Pudding!

      They look amazing! You are much better than me not to scoff them all before taking photos πŸ™‚

        Haha – thanks Jen! There were so many that I was able to nibble and still have some left for photos! The ones in the freezer that are supposed to be for Christmas gifts are dwindling before they’ve been gifted! πŸ˜‰ Vohn x

    These are perfect to add to the home made hampers I’m giving everyone this year. And even the toddler can help me make them πŸ™‚

      Homemade.
      hampers sounds interesting.

        Just a little bit of everything I can make. Jam, pickle, relish, crackers, knitted and crocheted things, chocolates πŸ™‚

          They sound brilliant-where do I place my order..?!

          • Danielle @ Bluebird Vintage December 8, 2013 at 5:40 pm

            Hahaha, I’m afraid they’re all wrapped up now (bar the crackers) Perhaps next year πŸ˜‰

    These look great. Forgive my stupidness but when you say cream cheese do you mean Philly cheese?
    Thanks

      I do indeed!

    Brilliant! Thanks for sharing. I rashly offered to do a demo & activity for my elderly WI group next week. I want to show them some ‘new tricks’ for Christmas, and this short cut to yummy truffles will be perfect, along with strawberry Santas, melted snowman cookies, reindeer biscuits and Christmas cake pops.

      Wow, they all sound fab! Am intrigued by the melted snowman cookies πŸ™‚
