This Friday saw lots of lovely things happening to me.... and it was payday....HURRAH!
The loveliest part of the day was catching up with my fellow Cambridge food bloggers for a meaty feast at Efes Restaurant on King Street.
Battling through the Grand Arcade and the hundreds of geeks queuing for the Apple Store and their new products...
....I wandered down to this warm and exciting restaurant to meet Nora, Ireena, Deepa & Sarah where we all enjoyed the delicious Turkish dishes, prepared and cooked right in front of our eyes (The Grill next to our table was a welcome sight...great to see the food so freshly cooked!)
and we got to catch up and discuss everything food-ish...the perfect way to start a very foodie weekend!
Whilst telling the ladies about the upcoming Book Club Tea Party, and the Chocolate Truffle Selection that I was planning to make for my guests, Sarah suggested the perfect recipe to give to my guests....and I did make them for it too!
They went down Very well, and I share the recipe here with you all.... I highly reccomend it!
1 Pack of Oreo Cookies, Crushed to their death (Very Finely- Like dust!)
1 8oz Pack of Cream Cheese, Softened
Chocolate to drizzle or dip
All you need to do is halve and place the Oreo Biscuits into a zip lock bag or food processor and crush to dust!
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until it has become loose... Only takes a few whips with a spatula.
Add the Oreos to the Cream cheese and mix in well.
Roll the Mixture into 1" balls and place on a waxed baking tray, and refridgerate for 10 minutes to harden.
Dip into melted chocolate, or drizzle chocolate over to lace the truffles....decorate however you like really!.... Get Creative!
Enjoy cold OR at room temperature!
Either way, they are tasty and you will be reluctant to share!
It really is that easy, why not Give it a go?... If you love Oreo's, then you will love this little treat! It has put many smiles on faces this weekend alone!
