These were actually made by my husband. He remembers buying them from the local bakers, Aulds, in Scotland in his youth and wanted a bit of nostalgia. He actually made them all by himself though I had to do the washing up! He says they taste very authentic. I wouldn’t know about that, having been deprived of Aulds bakery goods in my youth, but they do go down rather easily! And not at all posh unlike the proper chocolate truffle recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago. Also enjoy the random photo of our not posh cat, Brian.
Biscuity Chocolate Truffle Balls
20 oaty digestive type biscuits
200g condensed milk
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
125g desiccated coconut
chocolate strands or desiccated coconut to roll them in
Put the butter and condensed milk in a small pan heat gently until the butter is melted.
Put the biscuits into a food bag, hold the end closed and bash with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. Put the biscuits, cocoa powder and desiccated coconut into a large bowl and pour over the melted butter/condensed milk. Mix until well combined.
Form the mixture into ping pong sized balls with your hands and place on a tray lined with grease-proof paper. Put the extra coconut or chocolate strands into a food bag. Drop in the balls and roll around to cover them. Place them back on the grease-proof paper and store in the fridge until set firm. Store in the fridge until needed. These will last a week once made.
