A simple and fast recipe with which you will make a great impression!
Ingredients: digestive biscuits without palm oil (I use those of Gullon), chestnut jam, cocoa, vegetable milk of your choice or water. To decorate a choice of cocoa, coconut rapé, hazelnut or pistachio nuts, or what you like best.
Crumble the biscuits finely, until a powder is obtained. With the Bimby blend 10 sec / vel 8. If some pieces remain to repeat. The rest is first done by hand, because the dough is extremely dense. In any case, if you want, mix for 10 sec / vel 4
Add the cocoa, stir, then add the jam and mix well first with a spoon and then knead with your hands.
As the mixture will not have enough cohesion, add a couple or more tablespoons of vegetable milk or water. With vegetable milk it is more tasty. I recommend, do not exaggerate with the liquid, must be a malleable but not soft mixture.
When the dough is well mixed and is elastic, with the hands formed the balls of about 2-3 cm. (a tidbit).
Decoration: pour cocoa into a coffee cup, put one ball at a time and quickly turn the cup until the ball is completely covered with cocoa.
If, on the other hand, you want to use flake coconut or hazelnut / pistachio chips, in this case you will have to slightly moisten the balls so that the coating sticks. In the photos, use of vegetable milk, but you can also moisten them simply with water. In this case it is the same.
The truffles are best served after a rest in the fridge. Good snack!
