These heavenly snacks are wickedly nice!

Directions

  1. Crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs (Putting it into a small plastic bag and hitting it with a rolling pin works best).
  2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and put into a microwaveable bowl.
  3. Put the bowl into a saucepan about halfway full of water depending how big the bowl is (The bowl and water shouldn't touch each other) and heat until melted.
  4. Mix in the butter and crushed biscuits.
  5. Leave mixture in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  6. Take a teaspoonful of the mixture and roll it into a ball shape with your hands.
  7. To make it look more truffley roll it in cocoa powder or chocolate sprinkles.
  8. Enjoy!

I don't usually have much milk chocolate around since I tend to prefer dark so I didn't have quite enough to make this. I ended up using a little more than half milk (31%) and the rest dark (mostly 70% with a little 60%). In place of digestives I used some shortbread cookies I had on hand.
The mixture was delicious but I did have a little trouble with rolling it. After 10 minutes it was still WAY too soft so it went back in the fridge. I checked every 10 minutes until 30 more minutes had passed and it was finally solid enough to roll up but it warmed up extremely quickly. I started out rolling into balls but ended up just portioning out into a bunch of chunks and putting back in the fridge for 5 minutes to firm back up before rolling into balls then rolling in cocoa. Definitely need to be kept in the fridge after finishing too.
For taste these get 5 but for ease of making them, they get a 3. Glad I tried these, though I might try them again with a little less butter - hopefully that will help with the softness. I ended up with 2 dozen truffles. Thanks for sharing!
