Red Velvet Cheesecake Truffles

Hey everyone! A very simple recipe for you today! This recipe takes very little time and effort and it just looks and tastes absolutely amazing!!!

If you are adding the white chocolate chips to the centre make sure they are very small. I used the Aldi ones as they are the perfect size. Chop up yours if they are too big and chunky.

NOTE: Please keep these truffles refrigerated!! They have cream cheese in them so they need to stay in the fridge. They are best eaten if removed from the fridge 10/15 minutes before eating.

These would make such a beautiful gift for someone. If you have any questions Dm me on Instagram. Happy Baking! <3 Also, check out my new facebook group ”Gills Bakes and Cakes <3”
