Milk Chocolate Truffles

by Mia Grout (England)


  • 1/2 a packet of digestives (cookies)
  • a bar of milk chocolate
  • a box of icing sugar
  • sprinkles


  • a rolling pin
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • a saucer
  • a microwave
  • a tea spoon

1) Put the biscuits into the mixing bowl and with the rolling pin crush the biscuits to crumbs.

2) Put the chocolate into the other bowl then heat in the microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Now add 3/4 of the chocolate to the crumbs and mix.

3) Shape the mixture into a ball shape and if it doesn't shape into a ball add the rest of the chocolate. Now add some icing sugar so it doesn't stick to your hands.

4) Take a small amount of the ball and roll into small balls you should be able to make about 40. Now pour some of the sprinkles onto a saucer then roll them in the sprinkles.

Try these Almond Coconut Truffles

Pumpkin Truffles

  • 2 1/2 Cups vanilla cookies, crushed
  • 1 Cup toasted almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 6 oz. pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 Cup apple juice
In a medium bowl, add cookies, almonds, cinnamon and powdered sugar. Stir together and add chocolate chips. Add in pumpkin puree and apple juice. Stir to combine all ingredients. If you use your hands you will be able to combine easier. Roll into small balls. Place on a sheet of wax paper or cookie sheet and chill for several hours.

**If you'd like to dip truffles in chocolate, melt more chocolate chips. Dip chilled balls in melted chocolate, place on wax paper and chill again.

**You can also roll in powdered sugar or more chopped almonds. Please note: If you leave out the Apple Juice the truffles will set up faster, you may add a little butter also. The butter will set up in the fridge quickly.
