How pretty do those look?
Hi Guys, How are we?
I’m back ( I love how I keep saying “i’m back” as if I went somewhere- Gosh) with another recipe for you lovely people! I’m trying to work out a schedule of when to post and what to post. I think i’ll start posting recipes on “treat yo self Tuesdays” and new reviews every Friday- sounds good to me! Okay, on to this Treat Yo Self Tuesday’s Treat (wooh, what a tongue twister).
I’ve had Biscoff cookies in my Cupboard for a while now and I got tired of just eating them when I wanted to, so I thought i’d look for something to make with them and that’s how I came across biscuit truffles! Whenever you think of truffles you automatically assume chocolate truffles right? I know, me too. Speaking of Chocolate Truffles, I’ve suddenly (literally this morning) developed a craving for them- so on to my list of “to bake”things it goes and i’ll share the recipe when I make them!
So, I wanted to experiment with biscuit truffles, you know its good to try something different and new every once in a while. With google being my best friend and all I went on a search for the easiest recipe I could find- I can’t stand over complicated recipes especially now that i’m in school and don’t have much time or complicated “equipment”.
The original recipe for these Truffles I found on ifyougiveablondeakitchen.com and you know me always trying to switch it up so I added a tablespoon of Cookie butter just for that extra Biscoff goodness.
Anyways, enough of the backstory and on to the making and eating of these truffles! If you cant find Biscoff cookies i’d think that it would be okay if you use your favourite biscuit to make these. I must say though, these are a bit on the sweet side because of the white chocolate coat, but still a treat nonetheless.
Heres What you’ll need:
- 32 Biscoff cookies or equivalent
- 1/4 cup of cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon of Cookie butter
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- 1 cup of white chocolate
- Sugar crystals For sprinkling on the truffles if you so desire to do so
What you want to do first is Crush your biscuits, either manually or using a food processor.
I didn’t have a food processor so I just put the biscuits into a ziploc and bashed them up with a glass bottle- it’s great stress relief I tell you! You want to get fine crumbs or as fine as you can.
Then you want to add the cream cheese, milk and biscuit butter to the crumbs and mix it well until it comes together – if you can’t find cookie butter, it’s okay to leave it out, I also used skimmed milk cos that’s what I had.
Put the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes while you netflix and chill! And when that episode of whatever you’re watching is done, get your mix out the fridge.
Using a tablespoon or a mini scoop if you have one and your hands, roll out balls of the mixture onto a piece of parchment. And refrigerate for 10 minutes while you melt your chocolate!
Melt your chocolate in 30 second bursts, stirring after every 30 seconds until your chocolate is completely melted. Let the chocolate cool for about 5-10 minutes and then, using a fork dip a truffle at a time into the chocolate until its fully covered and then tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to get rid of any excess *and breathe*.
As you coat the truffles, place them back on the parchment gently and if you wish, you could decorate them with any sprinkles you have or even with crushed biscuit crumbs . I used Gold dusted sugar crystals that I found in a cupboard at home and it transformed them into some fancy shmancy treats that would cost you an arm and a leg in a fancy London bakery. Let your truffles set and harden either on the counter top or in the fridge.
They look so pretty right? I KNOW! I didn’t want to bite into one- but then again, you know me. I can’t stay away from sweets.
Now, these didn’t really do much for me, although I liked that it was a different way of eating Biscoff Biscuits and Biscuit butter.
I think these would make a GREAT gift or even party/ wedding favours. You could always colour the chocolate and use different sprinkles or drizzles for whatever look you’re going for! If you want in on the Biscoff Craze but truffles are not your thing, try this heavenly mug cake– I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Well, that’s all from me today Folks! If you do try these, let me know how it goes!
