Are you ready for a truffle recipe like no other? This amazing recipe by our blog contributor Annette will have you diving into the kitchen!
Snickers, cream cheese, vanilla extract, biscuits, butter and chocolate chips. Do you have any idea what you can do with these ingredients? Don’t think too hard!
Mmmm Snickers Cheesecake Truffles. Being the owner of Cheeky Cheesecakes of course I love cheesecakes, so I thought why not combine it with one of my favourite chocolates the Snickers bar. For something quick try this yummy truffle recipe!
This truffle recipe is so easy to prepare, that all in all it should take you about 15 minutes. But, you have to count in that the mix has to get cold and harden in the fridge for a few hours, while that’s happening eat some extra snickers they really satisfy! Hehehe
I hope you’re ready to get your hands dirty, because this recipe really works best with some serious hands on action. So wash ‘em well.
I started by placing butter and 12 Snickers fun size bars into a small saucepan and melt over low heat. Be sure to keep the heat low to allow time for sufficient melting without scorching the snickers. By the time you complete the rest of the recipe, the snickers will have melted.
Place the Nice biscuits into a large bag. Push out the air and seal the bag. Use a rolling pin or your preferred crushing object. Crush biscuits to fine crumbs. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, biscuits and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly to create a uniform truffle dough. Add the melted Snickers and stir to combine.
I chopped the second bag Snickers fun size bars and I chopped them into quarters. (Keeping 7 aside). Mix the chopped Snickers into the truffle dough. Refrigerate the dough for a few minutes, while I prepared to make the truffle coating. Slice 7 snickers fun size left aside into slices (thirds). I then put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and set aside.
To make the truffles themselves, use a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon to portion out the cake into generous balls, then use your specialized cake-ball-rounding-baking instrument to form them into perfect circles.
Just kidding! We’re using our hands again!
Roll the cake balls between your hands to get them fairly round, then place them on a foil or waxed paper. This allowed me to shape 21 truffle centers, 20 of which actually survived to be dipped.
What is even more important is that not one of the truffles I made stayed around long. My girls couldn’t wait to try them, once they did it didn’t take long for them to disappear. They definitely didn’t last long. The last couple left were demolished by my husband “how good are these” he said while munching on them
Leave them on display and uncovered at your party. Just chill again if they get to room temp. But I bet they won’t last long enough for that.
If you’re not eating them right away, you can store these truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. And of course, you can use this recipe as a jumping-off point. Experiment with different cake flavours, and different toppings. A super-flexible, super-easy recipe.
What I like best about this easy recipe is that the truffles are extra yummy!
