Coconut Truffles


I was going to tell you about SUCH a wonderful recipe today, but sadly I didn't observe that my old card reader didn't like my new high-capacity memory card that I got for my likewise new compact camera, so the photo is stuck for now. Watch out in a few days time though - and you might want to save up some calories, because, wow. :)

Anyway. This isn't half bad either. I made these for Christmas, and while they might look a lot like classic Swedish chocolate balls with coconut, they're not very similar in taste.

You can give these your own twist, by adding perhaps a little lime zest, or a splash of rum.

Coconut Truffles
about 60 very small truffles

100 g dark chocolate
50 ml cream (double/heavy/whipping - whatever it might be called where you live, but as fat as possible)
100 g coconut flakes (unsweetened!)
100 ml powdered sugar

Start by putting two tablespoons of the coconut aside.

Melt the chocolate and mix in the cream, coconut and powdered sugar. Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours, then shape into small balls that you roll in the coconut you have left. Place in small paper cases and keep cool.

In case I remember correctly it's a Lumix camera? So if, then you don't need a card reader, you can connect camera and computer by a cable which is already in the box :-)

Totally true, I just don't like doing that. :)
