Anzac Biscuits

We have our Aussie and Kiwi friends to thank for these absolutely scrumptious biscuits! Let me explain why. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance which is celebrated every year on 25 April – the anniversary of the Anzac’s landing at Gallipoli, in Turkey during World War I.

Anzac biscuits contain no eggs, as these 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.

Oh yes. You read that right. As if ice cream wasn’t delicious enough already, you throw in some crunchy, chocolatey Oreo’s and you now have heaven on a spoon!

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!

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

My husband and I have recently relocated, and are temporarily staying at an Airbnb until we can move into our new home.  As soon as we arrived at the Airbnb I scouted out the kitchen. Sadly it was not very well equipped – no mixer, no scale, no baking trays, not even a mixing bowl to be found! My fingers were twitching to get baking though, so I racked my brain for a simple recipe that requires next to no equipment to make.
