Thanks to Josephine for contributing her favourite Christmas recipe for these delish Chocolate Truffles.
These are perfect for when you offer to bring something to the Christmas party, hoping the host will say “No, don’t worry about it” but they actually say yes.
At this point, you panic because you were only asking to be polite, not because you really intended to bring anything.
These little beauties will rescue you every time and remember, if someone rolls up with a plate of these at your next do- they were only offering to bring something to be polite! Hahah!
These are quick and so easy to make- but beware, they don’t last long, so make a few extra!
1 pack of Marie or similar biscuits (plain, sweet biscuits or digestive biscuits)
1 tin condensed milk
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
¼ cup rum (optional)
extra coconut for rolling
Crush biscuits until fine – think breadcrumbs, or cheesecake base.
Combine with remaining ingredients and with damp hands (to prevent you becoming a big, sticky mess) roll into small, bite-sized balls.
Lick the bowl clean while you watch Days of Our Lives.
Roll the balls in extra coconut and refrigerate.
These are great to enlist the help of the kiddos- they love the rolling and general making a mess of everything.
