Choc Mint Crunchy Truffles

These little balls of choc minty goodness are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Serve them as an after dinner treat with a cup of coffee or tea.

The inspiration for this recipe was found on the back of a Coles desiccated coconut pack and I “Christmasfied” them.

INGREDIENTS
200 gm Mint Chocolate – I used the Aldi $1 100gm packets of chocolate. They have a variety of flavours you could use to vary this recipe.
1/4 Cup Thickened Cream
7 Sweet Biscuits, crushed finely ( place in a zip lock bag and crush with a rolling pin) – I used Aldi Maria biscuits at 99c a packet.

3. Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours until the mixture is able to hold together when rolled into a ball.
4. Place the ingredients you will be rolling the truffles into small bowls.
5. Take teaspoon size amounts of the chocolate mixture and roll into a ball, then roll in the topping. Repeat until all mixture is used.

These can be made a few days in advance.
