Meeting Jenny at Convention.
Yet another highlight from Convention! On the Friday morning when we were milling about in the recption area I had a tap on the shoulder and a tentative 'Are you Moira'? It was Jenny (Stamping moments) who I 've been writing to via e-mail for at least 6 months. She really spoiled me with my favourite UK recipe magazine, a jar of Dorset honey, a fridge magnet and a beautiful easel card she made which I have displayed in my room. I wish we could have had time to chat some more but never mind, Jenny is going to Monaco next June with me so we can spend some more time together then.
My present to Jenny was some of my chocolate and coconut truffles and she said her husband loved them and she had to have the recipe. So here it goes, in French and in English beacuse I'm always being asked to copy this recipe out for people!
100 g de beurre butter
50 g de noix de coco râpé dessicated coconut
100 g de chocolat Cadburys drinking chocolates en poudre (comptoir irlandais) Cadbury's drinking chocolate
1 boîte de 400 g de lait concentré sucré Nestlés condensed milk
22 gâteaux écrasés (McVities digestives au comptoir irlandais ou à
intermarché) Digestives (which you then crush)
Faire fondre le beurre, ajouter 50 g de noix de coco, le chocolat en
poudre et le lait concentré sucré.Melt the butter, add 50g coconut, the drinking chocolate and the condensed milk.
Mélanger puis ajouter les miettes de gâteaux. Mix together then add the Digestives.
Laisser refroidir un peu, puis rouler en petites balles et rouler dans un
bol de noix de coco. Leave to cool then roll into small balls before then rolling in a bowl of coconut.
Mettre au frigo et même une partie au congélateur car ça en fait beaucoup (environ 50). Put the truffles in the fridge to harden a little, this recipe makes around 50 depending on how big you make them.They freeze very well and I tend to make a huge batch and try to persuade my boys to help with rolling them into balls!
