Cooking with kids is a great way to keep them busy while having fun – plus, you have something delicious to eat at the end! (Most times…!)
Here is a simple recipe that our very own teacher, Nadia, used to use when she was a kid in primary school!
- 1 tin condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 packet plain sweet biscuits (eg. digestives)
- 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup raisins or sultanas (optional)
- Put the biscuits in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into fine crumbs.
- Pour the crumbs into a bowl and add the cocoa powder and some of the condensed milk.
- Mix together. If the mixture is dry, add some more condensed milk.
- Mix in half of the coconut and the raisins.
- When you’re happy with the mixture, take a spoonful and use your hands to roll it into a ball.
- Roll the ball in the remaining coconut and put it on a tray.
- Continue making balls until you have used up all of the mixture and then put the tray in the fridge so that your truffles can set.
- Take out your truffles and enjoy!
