Coconut Cake Truffles


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
To all my friends, fans and readers,  may this Valentine's be a lovely one for you. 





To make about 20 truffles:
80-120g plain chocolate (according to preference)
small knob of butter
130g cake crumbs
some coconut flakes

You don't really have to be accurate with these ingredients. Just rough estimates will do. 



Making the truffles:
1 - Melt the chocolate and butter bain marie. Stir till smooth, then remove from heat.
2 - Pour over cake crumbs and mix well.
3 - Roll mixture into small balls.  If mixture is too soft, chill in the fridge for a while till it firms up.
4 - Toss the balls into coconut flakes to coat.
5 - For coloured coconut flakes, mix a few drops of colouring into some coconut and mix well. 
6 - Place in paper cases and chill till ready to serve.
