These are nut-free truffles which are also gluten-free in this version because we used gluten-free biscuits.
Really, I’d rather the kids made these healthy raw chocolate truffles, but that recipe has nuts so won’t do for school.
And anyway, I was taught to make these simple truffles by one of my favourite teachers at primary school in 1973, so it’s a recipe I’m very emotionally attached to.
My teacher had 24 of us all whacking biscuits to pieces in plastic bags. It was mayhem, but fun.
Condensed Milk Chocolate Truffles – Gluten Free
300g Arnotts Rice Cookies (gf)
395g tin of condensed milk
50g butter, chopped
30g golden syrup
Put cookies, coconut and cocoa into a blender and blend into fine crumbs
Melt condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in microwave or on stove top
Mix together, allow to cool. Leave in fridge for a couple of hours if you have time
Roll into balls and roll in coconut.
A bit of a seasonal treat, and the kids can run off all those calories no problem.
For myself, not so easy so I send them ALL off with the twins.
Do you still make sweet treats you learned as a child?
Were you at school in the 1970’s?
Were you even born then!!??
