Oreo fudge balls

How can something this delicious have so few ingredients, that is what I’d like to know. I took great pleasure in offering them to my family, going “guess what’s in them??” and then informing them that there are in fact only four ingredients. It’s the small things in life.

These oreo ‘fudge’ balls actually aren’t fudge at all, but you wouldn’t know unless you were the one to make them. They are incredibly moist, creamy and chocolatey, with a very mild tang from the cream cheese followed by a light undertone of vanilla.

Oreo cheesecake brownies

I’ve always had a weird lust for cream cheese (even more so for sour cream, but that’s a story for another time), so the idea of a brownie filled with cream cheese was next level. The oreo part failed to excite me because, I’m sorry to admit, I don’t really like them. There, I said it.

I have to say though; they are incredible in this brownie. Along with their flavour they contribute a brilliant texture: the small scatterings of crunchy oreo pair perfectly with the moist brownie and soft layer of cream cheese.

Dark chocolate fondant

Dark chocolate fondant.

It’s probably one of the easiest desserts you could ever make, and if you are partial to chocolate and all things sweet, it’s probably one of the nicest, too. It’s one of those, ‘I’m hungry and want dessert but can’t be bothered doing much to get it’ type of recipes.

It’s only cooked for about 10-12 minutes: this is basically so that the outside cooks enough to hold it together, but when you break into it, the inside flows out and tempts your spoon with it’s smooth, chocolaty goodness. Banana and berry coulis goes great with it, it’s a nice break from the intense chocolate of the fondant (never thought I’d say that).
