Read the recipe and find out for yourself.
MAKES 12 TRUFFLES
- Marie Biscuits – 16
- Butter – 2 tbsp
- Peanut Butter chocolate chips – 1/2 cup
- Condensed milk – 1/2 cup
- Roasted peanuts powdered – 1/4 cup (Optional)
- Set up a double boiler. Fill water up to an inch in a saucepan. Place a heat-proof dish atop the saucepan.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- I’ve used Marie biscuits here, but you could any biscuit of choice. I’ve also used Graham crackers.
- 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.
- You could roll this in a variety of topping – sweeetened coconut, sprinkles, cocoa powder, nuts etc.
