I got a delicious treat for you! … White chocolate covered cheesecake truffles. Doesn’t it sounds fancy…….and mouth-watering?!!
These truffles could not be better, they’re incredibly delicious.
I can not believe I have never made these before. Two words: crazy easy to make and tasty in every single bite.
If you love chocolate and cheesecake, you will not be able to stop after just one truffle. The filling is semi-sweet, creamy and moist … just irresistible. All thanks to the cheese, I made it with dry curd (dry cottage cheese, farmer’s cheese or whatever you want to call it) you can buy it at every Polish store, it’s called twaróg and it’s the one and only key to these luscious truffles.
Seriously, buy the cheese and make the truffles! They are the perfect Christmas treat!!
