Nutella Oreo Truffles are ultra decadent truffles with a soft and creamy crushed Oreo and Nutella filling and coated in a white chocolate coating.
These Red Velvet Truffle Bars are a soft, chewy and slightly cakey red velvet cookie bar with a thick layer of Oreo Truffle spread on top that is then finished with melted chocolate and white chocolate hearts for Valentines Day.
I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t going to create a ‘Valentines Day themed treat’. For one thing, I have no one to celebrate the day with – #singlepringle – and for another thing, I think Valentines Day is more just a big marketing ploy than anything else. Call me naive, but shouldn’t you love and show the love you have for your significant other everyday not just on one specified day? (Maybe I would be less cynical and more inclined to celebrate this day if I had someone but alas, that is not the case. #ForeverAlone.)
Oreo Truffle Cheesecake: Sweet and creamy vanilla cheesecake, smothered in Oreo truffle and topped with a rich chocolate ganache….. This is decadence at its finest and nothing short of showstopping.
Did you know that the cheesecake has been around for centuries and is thought to have been created on the Greek island of Samos as cheese molds have been excavated and from there and are dated right back to 2000 B.C.? Anything further than that, we will never know as it goes back into a time known as prehistory!
Cheesecake was used by Ancient Greeks as a wedding cake but not only that, it was considered a great source of energy and it has been recorded that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 B.C.
Athenaeus, a Greek writer, is credited with recording the first cheesecake recipe in 230 A.D. (Of course it was very plain and quite different to the cheesecakes we know and love today). In fact, it wasn’t until 1872 in America, that cream cheese was even discovered so that is certainly a more modern addition!
