Snickers Cheesecake Truffle Recipe

 

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!

Snickers 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.

Snickers Cheesecake Truffle Recipe

Ingredients

  • • 2 (7 oz) bags of Snickers fun size bars
  • • 1 teaspoon butter
  • • 9 Nice biscuits
  • • 1 (8 oz) block of cream cheese, softened
  • • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • • 1 (12 oz bag) Milk chocolate chips
  • • 1 - 2 teaspoons sea salt flakes

Instructions

1. Place butter and 25 Snickers Bites 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 bars. By the time you complete the rest of the recipe, the snickers will have melted.

2. Place the Nice biscuits into a large ziptop bag. Push out the air and seal the bag.

3. Use a rolling pin to crush the crackers and reduce them to fine crumbs.

4. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, biscuits ,and vanilla paste.

5. Mix thoroughly to create a uniform truffle dough.

6. Add the melted Snickers.

7. Stir to combine

8. Chop the rest of the Snickers Bites remaining in the 7 oz bag you took the first 25 from. I chopped them into quarters.

9. Mix the chopped Snickers into the truffle dough.

10. Refrigerate the dough for a few minutes, while you prepare to make the truffle coating.

11. Open the second bag of Snickers Bites and slice 7 of the bites into slices.

12. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and set aside.

13. Remove truffle dough from the refrigerator and form into uniformly-sized balls. 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.

14. Place a sheet of parchment on a tray.

15. Arrange the truffle balls on the tray and place in the freezer or refrigerator, to chill, while you melt the chocolate chips.

16. Melt the chocolate chips in your microwave. I used full power and it took 1 minute and 45 seconds to get the right consistency for dipping the truffles. Check the chips every 15 seconds and stir until you get a nice creamy dip.

17. Remove the truffle centers from the fridge and one-by-one, use a fork to dip and turn them in the chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to fall through the tines of the fork.

18. Place the coated truffles back on the parchment and arrange one slice of the Snickers bites atop each one.

19. Sprinkle each truffle with a few flakes of the sea salt.

20. Refrigerate to allow them time to set up.

21. Serve chilled.

    Hi what are nice biscuits? Sorry, where can i find them?

    • Catherine Holt June 18, 2015 at 8:25 pm #

      Nice biscuits are basically plain vanillary biscuits covered with sugar sprinkles. I know they sell them in Oz and the Uk, but not sure about the rest of the world. If nice biscuits arn’t available where you are, any plain biscuits would do the trick I’m sure 🙂
