Chocolate Truffles

These Chocolate Truffles are very popular at our family gatherings, but I must admit that I haven’t made them since Christmas. They did go down well though. I guess that I don’t make them as much as I used to, because let’s face it, they are fiddly when it comes to rolling the balls. I have tried wearing gloves and even wetting my hands, however they still end up a mess. Although, the end result I must say, is worth it.


1/2 lb Marie Biscuits (8 oz or 240 grams)
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3/4 cup of desiccated coconut and an extra cup for rolling
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon rum or imitation rum


Pound the biscuits with a rolling pin until fine
Mix all of the dry ingredients together
Add the liquids to the mix and stir
Use a spoon to scoop up small portions and roll into balls
Roll the balls in extra desiccated coconut to coat
Put into the refrigerator to set


Place a bowl with warm water near by and wet your hands whilst rolling the balls
Substitute the rum with Sherry or Brandy
These chocolate truffles can also be rolled into logs instead of the traditional ball shape
If you are crafty style them in a box as a gift or wrap with cellophane
Handy to take to functions and parties as they transport easily

P.S. I made these again in April and they were beautiful, please give them a go!
