Toffee Pop truffles

2 Packets of Original Toffee Pops

4 TBSP Cream Cheese (Original, not light)

3 Cadbury Flakes

 

In a food processor blend the toffee pops and cream cheese (half a pack of Toffee Pops and 1 TBSP Cream Cheese at a time) to make a sticky mixture. It is ok to leave some biscuit chunks for extra crunch.

Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor after each batch.

Remove the blade from the food processor, then roll mixture in to bite size balls (about 25mm round).

Crush flake until fine and roll balls through to coat.

Put the balls in an airtight container and put straight in to the fridge to set. Keep refrigerated.

1 and a ½ cups choc drops

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup white sugar

1 egg

 Vanilla essence (dash)

2 cups of plain flour

½ teaspoon of baking soda

 ½ teaspoon of salt

 

Put oven rack into the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius on fan bake.

Line a tray with baking paper (not grease proof paper).

In a large saucepan add cubes of butter to melt on a medium heat, take off heat before fully melted.

Add in 1 cup of the choc drops, let the heat in the pan melt the chocolate.

Add in brown and white sugar and mix together.

Sift in flour and baking soda.

Add in salt and the remaining ½ cup of choc drops, mix together.

Scoop out little bundles of mixture onto the tray, don’t flatten. Arrange far enough apart so that they have room to spread out and cook evenly.

Cool for 2-3 minutes then move cookies to a wire frame cooling rack to cool properly.

Please Note: The cookies are supposed to be a little squishy once cooked.
