Here’s a recipe that was very popular last Christmas for the many school functions that need a sweet treat. It deserves an update for 2013!
These are nut free truffles which are also gluten free in this version because we used gluten free biscuits.
Really, I’d rather the kids are a much more nutrient dense type of truffle, but that recipe has nuts so won’t do for school.
And anyway, I was taught to make these simple truffles by one of my favourite teachers at primary school in 1973, so it’s a recipe I’m very emotionally attached to.
My teacher had 24 of us all whacking biscuits to pieces in plastic bags. It was mayhem, but fun.

Roll into balls and roll in coconut.Click ‘Print Friendly’ at the bottom of this post to print the recipe.
A bit of a seasonal treat, and the kids can run off all those calories no problem.
For myself, not so easy so I send them ALL off with the twins.
Do you still make sweet treats you learned as a child?
Were you at school in the 1970’s?
Were you even born then!!??
