    To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…

  • 100g rich tea biscuit
  • 50g white Malteser
  • 50g mini marshmallow
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 50g cake crumbs (we used shop-bought Madeira cake)
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
    Golden syrup

    Golden syrup is a clear, sparkling, golden-amber coloured, sweet

  • 100g desiccated coconut
  • edible glitter (optional)

Method

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Meanwhile, crush the biscuits and Maltesers in a large bowl with a rolling pin.

  2. Add mini marshmallows, dried cranberries and cake crumbs, then the chocolate and golden syrup. Mix well. Tip desiccated coconut onto a plate. Drop large spoonfuls of mixture onto the plate, then roll them around, coating in coconut and shaping into balls. Place on a baking tray and chill for 30 mins before serving. Sprinkle with edible glitter if you like.
