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 🙂
This is what you need to make 5 (scale up appropriately for the number you want to
- 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 🙂
