Merry Christmas 🎄
- 225g Cream Cheese softened
- 40 ginger nut biscuits finely crushed/blended (2 ¼ cups)
- White chocolate (melted)
1. First of all you need to finely crush/blend the ginger nut biscuits.
I began by crushing them in a clear plastic bag with a rolling pin. This is always an option, however it proved a lot easier to throw them into the blender instead. This made sure that no chunks of biscuit were left and it was all blended into a fine powder like substance.
2. Now it’s the messy part! Mix cream cheese and ginger crumbs by hand until well combined.
3. Now simply form balls with the mixture and place them on a clean surface, chopping board or baking sheet until all the mixture has been used.
Be sure to keep each one a bitesize amount otherwise they will be too heavy to stay on the kebab/cocktail stick later.
4. Melt the white chocolate over a saucepan and using a cocktail stick, dip each ball into the chocolate, making sure to rotate it until the entire ball is covered. Then place it back on the clean surface, removing the cocktail stick before decorating.
I made mine a little too large and they were consequently falling off the stick as I covered them in chocolate, so I was only able to dip them instead…. still tasted great!
5. Immediately add the sprinkles to each ball before the chocolate begins to set.
6. Allow to cool, the chocolate will set, securing the sprinkles in place.
Move them to a plate and SERVE!
The topping for this recipe can be altered very easily to create your favourite cheesecake flavour. I love a classic lemon taste and I’ll be adding that to my ingredients next time.
