Serves 1 - 16 Truffles

Truffles with a difference. They use digestives to make the truffles less rich and more like a biscuit.

My mixture was also too dry and just crumbled when I tried to roll, so I added some milk. This worked perfectly. And my goodness they certainly are delicious!

Sounds yummy! I think I might try this. Be a nice gift for someone too. I like jilly29's idea of using white chocolate & coconut.

I also found the mixture to be a bit dry. I added extra chocolate left for five mins and then rolled into balls. I also rolled them in dessicated coconut and then popped them in the fridge and it tasted fab.

I found this recipe really good I did some with white chocolate and instead of cocoa powder used coconut.

i agree! cream cheese, icing sugar, and (quite alot) hot chocolate is alot better.

Had same problem as Disy, personally i wasn't keen on the mix as the cocoa powder was too bitter, plus the filling mixture was too dry which was down to the digestive biscuit.

Fantastic recipe and so easy. I did however have to add extra chocolate as my mixture was not sticking.
