Made them. And whilst they look okay, they taste BLEUGH!! Reason being was I didn't roast the nuts. But I didn't PLAN on using nuts. I only used them because the white chocolate stuck to the pan when you crank them off the plate. Hence they were a last minute adjustment. Recipe I used was one using Golden Oreos. But this is the UK so we didn't have those. So I used ginger nuts and digestives. But they tasted blah so I added loads of lemon curd.... so in the end I don't think it's even worth linking the recipe! Recipe I would follow (if I was sane) looks like this.
Lemon Cheesecake Truffles
200g soft cheese
Half the smallest pack of digestives
Half a pack of ginger nuts (whatever was left over from the cheesecake!)
Half a pack of white chocolate cake covering (Dr Oetekars? is about 300g in total)
Bag of chopped mixed nuts.
3 large table spoonfuls of Lemon curd.
1. Bash the biscuits.
2. Mix in the soft cheese and lemon curd.
3. Roast the nuts.
4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave.
5. Roll balls of biscuit mixture in the white chocolate with forks and dip and roll in the nuts.
Makes around two/three platefuls (so accurate I know!) Come Christmas I'm doing these in coconut.
