    {Recipe} Delicious No Bake Faux Chocolate Truffles

    Today I’ll be sharing another favourite from my gran’s recipe file. The are very much literally balls of yummy chocolate goodness and super easy to make. I had to rename them a bit for the purposes of this post because literally translated they’d be chocolate balls and that doesn’t sound as fun as it does in Afrikaans. So here with go with No Bake Faux Chocolate Truffles.

    We used to make these every Christmas and depending on how many people we’re having over for the festive season we’d easily make the recipe times five! But way back when this post a whole other challenge of how to crush 5 packets of marie biscuits. We had a lot of fun stuffing them in a bunch of plastic bags and then running them over with the car a bunch of times. Modern times luckily (or shall I say awww no, because the car method was kinda fun) comes with a whole array of kitchen appliances to help you out.
