Plastic wrap is one of the most useful items in the kitchen. However, unrolling it can be annoying especially when it gets tangled on itself while you are unrolling it. Or it won’t stick to the surface. Sounds familiar?
(Lacy's ChefWrap 45cm x 300m with slide cutter)
Prep time 20 mins | Cook time 15 mins | Serve 16
2 cups of semi-sweet white chocolate
2 sleeves (30 cookies) of vanilla Oreo cookies (Separate some of the white cream for later use)
113 gr (1/2 bar) of cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup dark chocolate (Optional)
4. Put the white chocolate into a bowl. Melt it in a microwave or double boiler (preferred since we want to use low heat) and keep stirring. After the chocolate is melted and smooth, remove it from the heat. Save some into a piping bag for later decoration (optional), you may also do this for the dark chocolate.
5. Take the Oreo balls out of the freezer and place a toothpick into the center of each ball. Pick up a ball and dip it into the melted chocolate. Using a spoon to drizzle more of the chocolate over the top so the entire ball is covered. Set it aside on the parchment paper. Drizzle the dark chocolate on top. Repeat this process for all of the balls and allow them to harden for a few minutes, or you can put them to the freezer for 15 mins.6. Your No Bake Oreo Balls

Makes 40 Pcs | Prep time: 1 ½ hour | Cook time: 20 mins
125g salted butter, at room temperature
2 egg yolks
2 cups all-purpose flour
20g corn flour
½ cup of powdered sugar
1tbsp milk powder
600g pineapple flesh
4tbsp of sugar
Heart-shaped decorative sugar
Making the Pineapple Filling
Slice the pineapple flesh into pieces, then blend until puree. Cook on medium heat on a non-stick pot, and stir continuously to avoid burning. When it almost dry, add the sugar and mix well. Continue to stir on lowest heat until the pineapple filling turns golden and sticky. Set it aside to cool, and then chill in the fridge for 30 mins.
Making the Pastry
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk one at a time and beat until well combined. Mix in all the dry ingredients (the milk powder, corn flour, and all-purpose flour) to form the pastry dough.
Combining the Filling and Pastry
Divide the pastry dough to 10g and the pineapple filling for 8g. Roll them both into balls. Use your palm to roll out the dough and flatten it. Add a pineapple ball in the middle and wrap them by folding the edges and rolling it into a ball to cover the filling.
Place them on a baking paper. Brush the top by using the egg yolk. Decor it using the heart shaped decorative sugar and black sesame to form a chicken look.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 15 – 20 mins until they turn golden brown. Take them out and cool them on a wire crack and store it in an airtight container.
