Mum's What Have I got In the Cupboard Balls :-)350g choc bits (you can use cooking chocolate, but I prefer to break good choc into small pieces (you can also use crushed tim tams)add a small can of sweetened condensed milk and microwave on high for 2 minutes, then stir into a nice chocolaty sauce and try to keep the kid's fingers out. Note: this is near impossibleMix in whatever you have. I use a handful of shredded coconut, a handful of crushed walnuts, and 3 handfuls of crushed weetbix(a type of shredded wheat breakfast cereal), but you can use any small bits of nuts, dried fruit, and crushed cookie.While still warm and malleable, roll into balls or logs, then either roll in cocoa powder, or icing sugar, or din half in melted white chocolate.You can make them look like little puddings by drizzling white choc on a ball's top and using red and green glaced cherry pieces cut to look like holly. Yummy.
