Ingredients

  • 1 packet super wine biscuits (125g)
  • ¼ cup dessicated coconut
  • ¼ cup soft brown sugar
  • 35 g slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 50 g dark or milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tsp golden syrup
  • 50 g butter
  • ½ egg, beaten


  • 200 g dark chocolate, broken into pieces for dipping

Method

1. Crumb the biscuits in a food processor or use a rolling pin to crush into fine crumbs. In a mixing bowl combine the biscuit crumbs, coconut, brown sugar, slivered almonds and cocoa.

2. In a small saucepan over a gentle heat melt the chocolate with the golden syrup and butter. Alternatively microwave in 20 second bursts until melted. Stir and cool slightly before whisking in the egg.

3. Pour mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well to combine.

4. Line a tray with baking paper. Roll the mixture into small balls. Use about 1/2 Tbsp mixture per ball. Place on the tray and refrigerate until firm.

5. For dipping, place the chocolate in a bowl. Microwave in 20 second bursts until melted. Stir until smooth. Drop the balls one at a time into the chocolate to coat, using 2 forks lift the balls out of the chocolate and place on a clean sheet of baking paper. Refrigerate until set.

Tips

Try doubling the recipe and chill balls until firm. Freeze any excess balls prior to dipping in chocolate in an airtight container. Remove from the freezer and place on a tray lined with baking paper in a single layer in the fridge until thawed. Dip in melted chocolate . Return to fridge until set.

not sure what happened here but the mixture is not wet enough to shape into balls?

I had trouble with these being too dry as well. Looking at the recipe again our superwine is in 250gm packets not 125gm and there is my mistake I guess

Should read 1/2 packet wine biscuits - I have made these and they are really good.
