    It was one I found in a magazine... it said it was simple and easy... well!

    Just thought, if you post what you did, and what ingredients you used, someone with experience of making truffles could give you advice .........

    It said:
    Melt 200g of milk or dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water
    Add 100ml of double cream
    Add a few tablespoons of cocoa powder
    Set in fridge for one hour or until almost set
    Roll into balls and dust with cocoa powder/ grated chocolate
    Leave to finish setting in fridge

    Sounds simple enough!
    It seems to be setting a bit more now... hopefully they will be extremely delicious (and bad for you!)

    That sounds like it should work OK to me Ashleigh. Just wait a little longer.

    BTW, things like chocolate truffles are only bad for you if you eat them all the time. Hope your Dad enjoys them.

    I used to make chocolate truffles using digestive biscuits, condensed milk, cocoa power and maybe some melted marg. They were rolled in desicated coconut and left to harden for 10 minutes (if they were lucky:o).

    I can't find my recipe anywhere - it was a handwritten thing:rolleyes: and I wondered if anyone made something similar as I'm not sure of the quantities to use?

    Thanks for that, like you say the ingredients aren't the same but I'll use that as a starting point and 'try' and adapt it a wee bit;)

    I make something similar, we call them Chocolate coconut balls but the ingredients sound the same, my recipie is ( except I put coconut in the truffle itself)

    1 small tin of condensed milk
    16 digestive biscuits ( crushed finely)
    2 tablespoons of coco powder
    2 tablespoons of cocouny plus some for rolling
    Butter ? sorry that's the bit I can't remember fo the top of my head, I think it's 50g but wouldn't swear to it.

    I melt the butter and condesned milk in a pot and then add to the rest of the combined ingredients, leave to chill for an hour and make into balls and roll in the coconut.......really yummy.

    I also know somebody who makes them with marshmallows and cherry's and no chocolate and they are really nice too.

    I hope this counts as OS as I really need some help :o

    I've been making some Baileys & White Chocolate truffles and the instructions advise putting the mixture in the fridge to harden and then roll into balls and cover in icing sugar.

    I've done this and the mixture has firmed up but is now like a thick paste and won't hold it's shape. I've tried making balls but the mixture just squishes....:eek:

    So I need one of two kinds of help:

    Either 1 - How do I rescue them? Should I add more icing sugar til they stiffen up?

    Or 2 - what can I do with the mixture instead (apart from eat a spoonful each time I pass the fridge). Was thinking could use as a filling in something.....

    Many thanks in advance!
    I've got my own flat :j:j

    Now I have to pay the bills :eek:

    And feed my interiors addiction ;)

    I would guess that melting some more chocolate and mixing it in would help them set more
