Fruity chocolate truffles

A tasty sweet treat! These truffles also make a good Christmas gift. Whip them up, roll them up, wrap them up, give them away!
  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1 cup raisins, or sultanas
  • 1 cup walnut pieces
  • 2 large tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, or the grated rind of 1 orange
  1. 1. Roughly chop apricots. Place in a microwave-proof bowl with raisins and microwave on HIGH for about 30 seconds.
  2. 2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and whiz until the mixture is sticky. Don't over mix, as the mixture will become wet, making the truffles more difficult to roll.
  3. 3. Roll the mixture into balls (about 1 tablespoon at a time). Use cold, damp hands to roll.
  4. 4. Roll each truffle in cocoa, chocolate hail, or coconut.
  5. 5. Store in the fridge.
