Chocolate Granola by Blissfully Domestic-007

Chocolate Granola

I have a sister who loves to bake, just like I do. When I stayed with her recently, I tasted her latest creation – this totally addictive chocolate granola. She worked hard at perfecting the recipe, and then kindly shared it with me. I promised that I’d send her a shout-out for that. So thanks Sandra!

Considering how delicious this chocolate granola tastes, I was quite surprised to find that is Read More

Oreo Truffles by Blissfully Domestic-003

3 Ingredient Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles – the original cookie truffles! I couldn’t exactly post the other two varieties (Lemon Cheesecake Truffles and 3 Ingredient Strawberry Cheesecake Truffles) without posting the original, and in my opinion best. A wonderfully simple treat composed of a soft Oreo centre wrapped in creamy, sweet chocolate.

Just like the other cookie truffles, these are wonderfully easy to make.

Ingredients:

1 x 176g box Original Oreo’s
100g full fat cream cheese eg Philadelphia block, softened
200g white or milk chocolate

Directions:

  • Blitz the cookies in a food processor until you have quite fine crumbs. Remove a tablespoon of the crumbs and set aside for later.
  • Add the softened cream cheese and process again until combined.
  • Take heaped teaspoons of the mixture and roll into balls. You can make them a little bigger or smaller if you like. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Using a fork, dip each truffle into the chocolate and allow the excess to drip off.
  • Place on a wire cooling rack above a tray and decorate with the cookie crumbs you set aside earlier, before the chocolate sets.
    The tray will catch any excess chocolate or sprinkles.
  • Once all the truffles are coated, refrigerate again for at least an hour.

Peanut Butter Bars

Some people love peanut butter, some people hate it. I fall into the love category, my hubby – the hate. This means I don’t make peanut butter flavoured goodies all that often. So when I do, I don’t hold back on the peanut butter. These yummy peanut butter bars are made with a whole jar of the stuff! Thats right, an entire jar. Apart from that, there are just a few ingredients, and the recipe is so quick and easy your kids could probably make them!
