Ginger Choc Truffles

Sooo, it's Madiba's birthday today - yes, the man is already in his 90's!

Happy Birthday Mr Mandela !!!

He is such a wonderful man who had so many dreams, visions and hopes for this country, but sadly not all {I should say "most"} did not come true - no I'm not going to talk politics - just want to make a point that everything is not what it seems in South-Africa.

I made these amazing truffles only twice, no reason other than I forgot about them !

After last night's batch, I'll definitely make them more often - it's now a family favorite... and of course quick and easy. This took about 10 minutes to make and another 10 - 15 minutes to set.

I used mini cupcake liners and the recipe made 40.

Ginger Choc Truffles

200g Ginger Biscuits, crumbed (as fine or coarse as you prefer)
300g Good quality Chocolate
1 t Ground Ginger
1 t Vanilla

1.) Mix the Ginger biscuit crumbs with the Ground Ginger.
2.) Melt the Chocolate and add to the crumb mixture - stir to combine
3.) Add the Vanilla to the mixture and mix well.
4.) Scoop a teaspoon full of the mixture into each cupcake liner.
5.) Chill until set and serve.

I dusted mine with a too much bit of Icing Sugar. VERY  ADDICTIVE !!!

Till later, {behind on my posts again}
