This weeks 'This is' theme has perfect timing as This is what I'm taking along to Nico's birthday party today. Every aussie kid (and adult) loves chocolate truffle balls and they're super simple to make....no cooking, just lots of sticky coconutty fun!
1 packet of Marie or Malt biscuits (I prefer Malt) - packet is 250 grams
125 grams dessicated coconut
50 grams cocoa powder
1 390g tin of condensed milk
Extra coconut and / or hundreds & thousands to roll the truffles at the end
Crush the biscuits in the food processor (you can also do this by hand but it's messy).
Tip the crushed biscuits into a large mixing bowl.
Add the coconut and cocoa powder and mix it all together.
Add the tin of condensed milk and make sure to mix it in really well.
Roll into little chocolately balls and then dip in coconut or hundreds and thousands or both!
These will keep for a few days in the fridge in an airtight container but they don't usually last long enough to bother!
Don't forget to visit Angela if you'd like to play along each week.....
Update for any international readers:
Marie and Malt biscuits are the really plain sweet biscuits that are often used in cooking. They're the same type of biscuit that we use to make the base of a cheesecake.

Hundreds and Thousands are also known as sprinkles, or jimmies. They're used on fairy bread or cakes.
