Sweet Treats


These are easy and yummy, especailly if like me, you have spent years watching other people eat little chocolates at the end of a meal or at Christmas and wishing you could have the same. Nowadays a few companies sell chocolates which are lovely but not the same as home made. Try not to eat the mixture before its set as I always do!!

Dairy free, Egg free, Nut free, Gluten free (optional), and can be Soya free by using soya free margarine and milk.

10oz icing sugar (unrefined is best as its a bit like toffee)
3oz biscuit crumbs (optional- you can use the melting moments recipe on the blog or crush up any biscuits you can eat)
2oz margarine
2tbsp cocoa
1tsp vanilla essence
2tbsp soya or other allergy friendly milk
Chocolate sprinkles, extra cocoa, desiccated coconut

1. Mix together all ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Chill until firm keeping those sticky fingers out!
3. Roll into balls (Tip: pat hands with cocoa or icing sugar first as it stops the truffle mixture sticking to your hands)
4. Roll balls into cocoa, drinking chocolate, strands or coconut and put into mini cake cases.

These can be made more naughty by adding any liquor to the mixture. Brandy, or a mint liquor are my favourites.

Told you they were easy!
