R: Traditional Greek Truffles
Todays post is sweet and delicious.
I decided to share one of my favourite mouth-watering recipes.
Traditional Greek Truffles is a very Mummy/Housewife/Greek/ recipe to go-to especially when you have children.
Serves 17 (makes 35 truffles)
25 mins to prepare, plus 30 mins for chilling
110 calories / serving
2 boxes of plain biscuits (morning coffee) or ( Digestive)
1 1/2 cup of toasted almonds
1/2 cup of sugar
3 spoons of milk cacao (drinking chocolate)
13 spoons of melted butter
1/4 cup of coffee liquor
1 cup of Condensed milk ( Nestle)
Put the digestive biscuits in a mixer and mix them until you have crumbs
Put the butter and condensed milk in a pan over a low heat, until the butter melts. Allow to cool slightly.
Form the mixture into truffles about the size of ping pong balls (dipping your hands into water between making each ball will help prevent the mixture sticking to your fingers).
Put the chocolate strands (or desiccated coconut) into a plastic bag, then gently drop the truffle balls in a few at a time and carefully roll around until they're completely covered in the strands (or coconut).
Chill the truffles until ready to serve.
Enjoy & Stay Safe !
