Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • food processor
  • Tray or large plate
  • small wooden skewers

Ingredients
  

  • 150 grams white chocolate
  • 150 grams amaretti biscuits
  • 100 grams digestive biscuits
  • 150 grams cream cheese

Instructions
 

  • Blend or crush the amaretti and digestive biscuits to a fine crumb.
  • Mix them with the cream cheese until you get a dense consistency that stays together but isn't too wet and sticky. Add it gradually to get the right amount.
  • Roll the mixture into small balls, pierce with a wooden skewer and chill in a fridge on a tray for at least 30 minutes. If you're in a hurry, pop them in the freezer. 
  • Melt the white chocolate by placing it in a bowl above (but not touching) a saucepan of boiled water, or melt in the microwave.
  • Dip the cheesecake balls into the melted white chocolate and then immediately into more crushed amaretti biscuits before chilling until set either in the fridge or freezer...depending on how soon you want to eat them.
