Can you believe it’s only a little over a month until Christmas?!
I’ve already started to get organised and, for me, Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without making batch (or two!) of these delicious chocolate truffles!
I’ve been making the same recipe all of my life! It’s handwritten in the back of an old school recipe book by my older sister. I think it was one of the very first things I ‘cooked’ in the kitchen when I was a kid because it’s just so simple!
These chocolate truffles also make a great homemade Christmas gift. Last year we added some Cherry Ripe bars to the mix and made a few batches to give to teachers as presents. It was a hit!
But I still don’t think you can beat the original recipe which I’m sharing with you today.
They also make a great treat to bring along as a sweet to a party as they are so quick to whip up!
Stay tuned as I have a few more Christmas recipes coming your way on the blog …
2 cups crushed biscuits (I use Marie biscuits but any plain biscuit will work)
1 cup desiccated coconut (plus more coconut to roll the balls in)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 397g can condensed milk
- Crush plain biscuits using a food processor or by placing biscuits into a freezer/ziplock bag and rolling them with a rolling pin.
- Place into a mixing bowl with the other dry ingredients.
- Add the condensed milk and mix together.
- Roll into small balls (about a tablespoon of mixture each) then roll each ball in the coconut
- Put in the fridge to set.
TIP: Wet hands with water every now and then while rolling the mixture into balls to stop them from sticking to your hands to the get a nice smooth finish.
What recipe have you made since you were a child? How are you going with your Christmas planning this year?
