MAKES 12 TRUFFLES


INGREDIENTS

  1. Marie Biscuits – 16
  2. Butter – 2 tbsp
  3. Peanut Butter chocolate chips – 1/2 cup
  4. Condensed milk – 1/2 cup
  5. Roasted peanuts powdered – 1/4 cup (Optional)

METHOD

  1. Set up a double boiler. Fill water up to an inch in a saucepan. Place a heat-proof dish atop the saucepan.
  2. While the water comes up to a simmer, break the biscuits and grind them into a coarse powder. This will yield about 1 cup of powder. I used the mixer grinder but you could hand pound them too.
  3. Once the water is simmering, throw the butter into the bowl and melt it. Then add the chocolate chips and melt that too. About 2 mins
  4. Add the condensed milk and mix well. Finally, add the powdered biscuits and bring the mixture together. It’ll turn into a dough-like consistency. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions or more, depending on the preferred size. Roll them into balls and roll them in the roasted peanut powder if using.

NOTES

  1. I’ve used Marie biscuits here, but you could any biscuit of choice. I’ve also used Graham crackers.
  2. I’ve used Peanut butter chocolate chips here, but if you don’t have access to that, you could simply use dark chocolate or baking chocolate and add a tbsp of Peanut butter to the mix. Or you could skip the peanut butter all together.
  3. You could roll this in a variety of topping – sweeetened coconut, sprinkles, cocoa powder, nuts etc.
