COOKIE EXCHANGE EXTRAVAGANZA

Yyyaayyy its that time of the year again where some of the gorgeous people from blogland share their favourite recipes for the Great Cookie Exchange.

Here is my little contribution for this year

Raspberry Truffles


Ingredients

 1/2 cup (7fl oz) Evaporated milk
1/4 cup sugar
300gm (11oz) chocolate - milk or dark whichever you prefer
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
about 1/3 cup coconut 
1pkt powdered raspberry jelly mix


In a heavy based saucepan combine milk and sugar, Bring to a rolling boil over a medium heat, boil gently while stirring for 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat

 Add chocolate, jam, and coffee and stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth.  Chill for 1 hour

Combine coconut and jelly powder in a bowl. Roll the chocolate mixture into balls (about 1 rounded teaspoon for each) and coat with the raspberry coconut mixture.  Place on grease-proof paper and chill until firm.
 
Now for an extra special treat!!!!
 
Brandy Truffles
Replace the raspberry jam with 2 fl oz of Brandy (or 3 J) and roll in cocoa powder instead of raspberry coconut.
