3 Oreo Peanut Butter Truffles
No bake desserts are a quick way to get that sweetness you crave. Peanut butter Oreo truffles are totally customisable, you can swap out for original or golden Oreos. Toppings can also be adapted but for this we chose milk chocolate and sprinkles.
154 grams Oreo Peanut Butter
220 grams cream cheese
440 grams milk chocolate
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Put the Oreos into a food processor and blend until fine crumbs. Alternatively put the cookies in a ziploc or any resealable bags and mow over with a rolling pin.
Pour crushed cookies into mixer and add in the cream cheese mix until smooth at low to medium speed (Make sure cheese is softened, if not put in the microwave for a few seconds).
Using a teaspoon scoop out the mixture and roll into 1-inch balls. Place on the lined tray. Do this until all is exhausted.
Put the balls in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Melt milk chocolate in microwave or saucepan and allow to cool to about room temperature
Dip balls in melted chocolate and roll around until well covered. Pick up with a fork and give it a bit of a shake to allow excess chocolate run off. Cover with sprinkles (optional). Place on the tray using another fork to support.
Put truffles in the fridge for about 1 hour or until firm.
Truffles can keep in the fridge for about 1 week.

4 Lemon Muffins
Muffins are so versatile they can be eaten at any time of the day. They work well for breakfast, brunch, snack time, name it. We have this sweet and tangy thing going and we just cannot stop. Sprinkle some sugar over the muffins and you are good to go.
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
2 pcs eggs
3 pcs lemon
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
6 tbsps unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan with baking cups.
Mix 2½ cups flour, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1½ teaspoon baking powder in a medium bowl. In another bowl whisk sugar, eggs, 1½ teaspoon lemon zest, ¼ cup lemon juice and milk. Mix in the melted and cooled butter.
Make a well in the bowl with the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined (do not over mix).
Pour the batter into the baking cups, about ¼ way (this is because the batter rises). Sprinkle some sugar over (optional). Allow to bake for about 20 minutes. To check if it is done, insert a toothpick and it should come out clean.
Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
