Chocolate truffles are a party favourite! And can be made in a bunch of delicious varieties. Try using chocolate biscuits instead of plain biscuits, or coating them in coconut or cocoa just to name a few.
Four ingredients later, and these delicious truffles will be yours to devour!
What you need
250g sweet biscuits (chocolate or plain)
1 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons cocoa (additional, to coat each truffle)
3 tablespoons desiccated coconut (additional, to coat each truffle)
How to make it
Crush the sweet biscuits into fine crumbs using a food processor or a rolling pin (after placing the biscuits in a plastic bag, first!).
Place the biscuit crumbs into a mixing bowl.
Add the coconut, then use a wooden spoon to stir the coconut through and combine it with the biscuit crumbs.
Sift the cocoa into the mixing bowl, too, and stir until it is well combined with the biscuits and coconut.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
Crack open the condensed milk tin (yum!), and pour it into the dry ingredients well.
Mix everything together! You can either use a wooden spoon to do this, or dive in with your hands to press all of the ingredients together.
Spoon some extra coconut into a spare bowl, and some cocoa into another spare bowl, and set these aside. These will be used to coat the truffles once they're rolled.
Once everything is combined, take 1-2 teaspoons worth of truffle dough and roll it into a ball using your hands. Drop the chocolate ball into either the coconut bowl or the cocoa bowl, then roll it around to coat it. Place the truffle on a plate and keep rolling until all the mixture has been turned into delicious chocolate balls, coated in either coconut or cocoa.
After making the truffles, put them in the refrigerator to chill, then store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
