Have you ever thought ‘it’d be nice to make gourmet chocolate truffles myself’ but were intimidated by the level of skill that goes into them? Well I sure have! Before I went to pastry school, my attempts at making truffles ended mostly in a goopy mess. A delicious mess, no doubt, but a disaster nonetheless. There’s a reason why chocolatiers take years to perfect their craft and why handmade truffles cost a bomb. Well, not to worry cos here’s my “cheat” version which is inexpensive and so simple, you can even get your child to help you out.
Only four ingredients are required for the truffle but the key to success lies in the temperature of the ingredients. Do make sure that the butter and cream cheese are taken out of the fridge ahead of time to soften (but not melt!) before putting them all into the blender. And when melting the white chocolate for the coating, remember to use a dry, clean bowl because even the tiniest drop of water can cause chocolate to seize! If you pay attention to these tips and follow the video below, you’ll be enjoying creamy, yummy, decadent Oreo Cheesecake Truffles in no time. Enjoy!
