Hurray for my first baking post! Baking is another hobby of mine. I am not a professional baker (you’ll will definitely know that in this post haha). I plan on trying to be as creative as possible in order to come up with new an exciting recipes that you can do as well. I will tell you what worked and what didn’t. You can think of these recipes as a guideline. You can tweak the recipe to your own preferences and don’t forget to let me know what you’ve done (I would love to know!). Today I will be showing you how I made these Snowgie inspired Oreo Truffles. If you do not know what a Snowgie are, check out the short for Frozen Fever. They are cute little snowman that Elsa created every time she sneezed (It’s such a cute short).
The truffle part is super easy to make. You only need four ingredients. Now I’ve never made these before so this part I used this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/oreo-truffles-87967
- 1 bag of Oreo’s
- 1 8oz box of cream cheese
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 bags of 12 oz white chocolate morsels
- Electric mixture (makes mixing easier)
- Wax paper
- Baking sheet
- Mini marshmallows
- Black gel icing and Blue cooking icing
- 1 large Ziploc bag
What you’ll need to do:
- Obtain the Ziploc bag and add in the Oreo’s and crush the Oreo’s (crushing the Oreo’s 1 row at a time is best).
- Combine the crushed Oreo’s and the cream cheese into an electric mixture and mix until all ingredients are blended together.
- Roll the filling into two different sized balls. You should have an even amount of each. This is because you need a smaller size for the head of the Snowgies and a slightly bigger sized ball for the body (I used a picture of the Snowgies for a reference)
- Chill the filling for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
- After an hour has passed, it is time to melt the chocolate (I wasn’t as prepared, so I used a microwave safe bowl and placed the bowl in the microwave for 2 thirty second intervals. I mixed the chocolate in between the intervals). The chocolate part was hard for me. I recommend having a fondue maker. It makes dipping so much easier. The double boiler method is also a better option (both of these recommendation help prevent the chocolate from burning).
- Using a dipping tool or a toothpick, take the filling and dip the ball into the chocolate. Make sure to completely cover the ball and place it bake onto the wax paper (Dont mind if the toothpick creates a hole, you can cover it up later). Have some white chocolate left over for the next step.
- Let the chocolate completely dry (it’s a quick process).
- After the chocolate is dry, add a tiny amount melted white chocolate on top of the bigger sized ball to stick the two balls together.
- Quickly, add the smaller ball on top and hold it in place until the chocolate is dry.
- Add some melted chocolate on the bottom ball and add two marshmallows to make the Snowgies “feet”.
- Now the Snowgie is coming together and all you need to do is add two dots for their eyes using the black gel.
- To finish it up, add a smile using blue cooking icing and your Snowgie is complete!
