Ingredients

  • 250ml double cream.
  • 325g best quality milk chocolate chopped or broken into even sized chunks.
  • 1/2 packet of finely crushed digestive biscuits.
  • Cocoa powder, sifted.
  • Dessicated coconut for covering.

Method

  1. Stirring The Mixture Cooking

    Stirring the chocolate mixture – great fun with friends!

    In a heavy-based saucepan bring the cream up to simmering point.

  2. Cut the chocolate into evenly sized chunks and place into a glass mixing bowl.
  3. Pour the simmered cream onto the chocolate and mix well until smooth and glossy.
  4. Finely crush the digestive biscuits (wrap the biscuits in a freezer bag or cling film and crush to fine crumbs with a rolling pin). Add the crushed biscuits to the chocolate mixture as required until the mixture is stiff enough to hold together.
  5. Leave on a cold plate in a cool place for a little while, to cool and firm-up.
  6. When cooled enough to touch, take teaspoons of the truffle mixture, roll into pellet shaped ovals and dust with the ground cocoa powder and press on some dessicated coconut.
  7. Place your Owl pellet chocolate truffles in the fridge to set.
