Today my Mum is celebrating a milestone birthday and I want to dedicate this blog post to her.
A Christmas tradition my Mum and I love doing together is baking truffles. These are small, round, rich, chocalately treats.
To bring some festive cheer to my blog, I want to share how to make Christmas truffles:
- 20 Digestive biscuits
- 4oz Margerine
- 4oz Desicated Coconut
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 tablespoons drinking chocolate
- 1 tin condensed milk
- Chocolate and/or coconut strands (sprinkles)
- Break the digestive biscuits to tiny pieces in a food bag with a rolling pin
- Turn on hob and melt margarine in a pan
- Add other ingredients and mix thoroughly
- Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly and mix again
- Place small paper cases on baking tray
- Roll into small balls and roll in chocolate and/or coconut strands
- Put in small paper cases and put in fridge to harden.
- Once harden, store in plastic box or tin (Also freezable)
Personally, I prefer the truffles with coconut sprinkles because they look like snow balls. They are great as desserts, eaten with a cuppa and even shared out with colleagues and friends.
Due to my lack of mobility, there aren’t many tasks I can participate in when cooking or baking but with the truffles I’m able to break the biscuits, mix ingredients and roll the sprinkles on. Therefore it is a great recipe for anyone to do of any ability.
I would say baking these delicious treats with my Mum is one of my highlights at Christmas.
Next week, this festive activity will feature in my “5 favourite memories at Christmas” blog post which will be published on Scope’s community blog.
