These are, most often, no-bake cookies and cakes whose main ingredient is something that is a dessert itself. Marshmallows, Smarties-style candies, wafers, Oreos... are only some of them. Preparation time for these cookies is usually not longer than half an hour, so they are a great option for the
need-something-sweet-urgently moments. :)
And today on the menu: jaffa cakes! You know those sweet three-layered cookies with soft sponge base and fruit jelly covered with chocolate? Yes, I'm sure you do! :) Well, in this post I will show you how to transform those jaffa cakes into these delicious jaffa truffles!
I saw this recipe on a famous TV cooking show, where viewers could send their own recipes. The best ones are chosen to be prepared in the show by a professional cook and shown on television, while the credits and a certain material reward were given to the recipe creator. Though, the best reward was the fact that from all those people, your recipe was the one selected to participate in the show! :)
Without any further delay, let me share with you the recipe for those fantastic jaffa truffles... You'll need the following 3 ingredients only:
- 250 g jaffa cakes
- 250 ml whipping cream
- 5 tablespoons ground biscuits
1. Chop jaffa cakes. It will be easier to do this if you put them in the fridge for a few minutes first.
2. Whip the cream using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Add chopped jaffa and ground biscuits and combine. You need to get a mixture which is not sticky and can be easily shaped into truffles, so add some more ground biscuits if necessary.
In this recipe, you can use any type of biscuits: butter cookies, petit beurre, shortbread cookies...
3. Form truffles in whichever size you wish and roll them into ground biscuits or finely grated chocolate.
Enjoy and bon appétit!
