Wedding Truffles

I thought I'd share a great recipe for truffles today.
I made over 100 of these for after our wedding ceremony so people could have a wee treat & a drink while we were getting our wedding photos done.
The best thing is you can make these in advance and pop them in the freezer until you need them!
Wedding truffles complete with edible glitter!

You will need:
3 packs oreo biscuits (roughly 450gm)
1 tub cream cheese (250gm)
1 pack Cadbury choc melts
  1. Put all of the oreos & cream cheese into a blender and mix until combined.
  2. Chill for 20 minutes.
  3. Line a tray with baking paper.
  4. Roll into teaspoon sized balls, place on baking tray & chill for 10 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate until smooth and coat balls in chocolate.
  6. Chill until chocolate is set.
Now you can either eat your delicious truffles or store them for later!
You can swap the oreos for mint slice biscuits to make minty truffles too!

Well it's almost six months since the "big" day happened so I thought I'd share some pics & the best recipe for truffles ever!

We decided to have a really fun wedding...traditional just didn't suit us.

To start off my wedding car was an orange mustang (dream car!).

We rocked down the aisle to The Blues Brothers "Everybody Needs Somebody" and we were very lucky to have my uncle & a friend playing on electric guitars.

We picked our own vows and once these were done we gave our two children a pounamu necklace to include them in the ceremony.

We had an excellent night with great food...Pig on the spit, salmon, mussels, roast potatoes, salads & for dessert an ice cream bar!

It really was an awesome day and we wouldn't change a thing!

Our excellent wedding photographer Chris Mathieson did an awesome job & Pixie Pocket made me an amazing dress!

Making something special!

I've been very busy over the weekend making a couple of extra presents for my lovely daughter who turns seven this week!

I recently had a trip to the Make Café and picked up some beautiful fabric which I thought would be perfect for some pretty skirts. (It was hard not to buy everything...they have such beautiful fabric!)

I managed to find an excellent tutorial here for a super cute & very easy skirt....complete with simple sizing measurement!

I bought a couple of plain t-shirts & appliqued a cut out of the skirt fabric and to complete the outfit I made matching button hair ties and got a pair matching tights!

I can't wait to see what the birthday girl thinks!
