Those of us who like to cook always have our quick ‘Go To’ recipes.
They are usually a ‘never fail’ or ‘easy to make’ recipe that we can whip up quickly and look like we have it all together in the kitchen department when guests arrive… (even if we don’t).
I generally make from scratch, but this recipe uses store brought items that make this a super quick recipe to make…. even the kids can make this for you!
This is my never fail choc mint balls/roll recipe… it was kind of a secret until now.
It’s one of those versatile recipes that can be made either as balls or as a roll that you slice up to serve.
Here’s the best part… it uses only 3 main ingredients!
When I make it, I like to roll it in coconut, but that is optional.
Family block (220 grams) of peppermint flavored chocolate,
250 gram packet of Choc Ripple biscuits,
Condensed Milk – approximately 1/2 can of 395 gram can.
Shredded Coconut (optional).
Condensed Milk and Choc Ripple biscuits are a staple in my pantry, but you could easily substitute the biscuits for any other kind of chocolate flavored biscuit.
I have a Thermomix, so I literally make this mix in just 30 seconds, but you can also use a food processor.
Start by crushing the choc biscuits in the food processor.
Next, crush peppermint chocolate… my favourite part of this recipe!
Mix the crushed biscuit and chocolate together in the food processor.
Stir in enough condensed milk to moisten – (I find about 1/3 to 1/2 a can is adequate).
Roll mixture either in balls or in a log roll and cover in coconut (optional).
Refrigerate until firm.
I alternate between the balls and the roll, depending on the occasion.
The balls are nice as an after dinner mint and the roll looks lovely sliced up and served on a nice china plate for an afternoon tea.
Either way, they are always delicious.
