I love baking, but the thought of it, honestly makes me want to greet! But, when I get into the swing of it, I can’t stop, and get excited at the end of baking, as I get to eat all the sweet treats after. For Christmas this year, I am adding baking into presents so over the next 10 days, yes 10 days until blogmas is over! I will be doing 3 baking blogs on the yummy cakes I am giving to my family and friends as presents!

I read this online, and thought I’d do this as it’s a festive little treat. I love truffles, so can’t wait to see how these turn out!

What you need :

1 packet of ginger biscuits

90g of soft cheese

90g of chocolate chips (your choice)

sprinkles.. lots of sprinkles!

Step 1.

I started off by putting 15 ginger biscuits into a clear bag and smashed them off my chopping board until the went into tiny breadcrumbs. I then realised I was being silly, and went and put them in a blender.. a lot quicker, and works so much better. So I’d recommend a blender in stead of being a little silly, like myself!

 

Step 2.

I added the cream cheese into the bowl of ginger breadcrumbs and mixed together and it all stuck together. Then, I rolled them into balls and placed them on a baking tray that I lined with grease proof paper, and put them in the fridge for 30 minutes.

 

Step 3.

I then melted my chocolate. You could do this two ways, a microwave which can be a little risky as you don’t want to burn the chocolate, or put hot water into a pan, put the hob on at a low temperature and put your bowl of chocolate over the top of the pan, and mix until smooth. I used a pan and water in the end as I stupidly burnt the white chocolate in the microwave, oops! So I used milk chocolate instead.

 

Step 4.

I got a cocktail stick and using that put it into the truffle and dipped it into the chocolate! I then straight away added the sprinkles before the chocolate started to set!

 

Step 5.

Lastly, I put the truffles back in the fridge for a further 15 minutes, until completely set.

 

And now, you have yourself some festive truffles this Christmas! These would make lovely presents for family, and I’m going to use a cute bag to place mine in for presents!
