chocolate truffles GF DF

My sister Rebekah introduced me to this pretty great recipe last week, and so in an effort to make nice things for my dieted out daughter I changed the recipe to become dairy free and gluten free. :)

125 gm GF DF coconut biscuits
100 gm DF margarine
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup icing sugar (check ingredients)
1 cup coconut
1/4 cup dried fruit (I used a mix of apricots and apple)
1/2 tsp caramel essence
1-2 Tbsp water

Crumb biscuits in a food processor. Add the margarine, cocoa, icing sugar and coconut. Add dried fruit and caramel essence. Mix, adding a little water if dry. Form mixture into small balls. Roll in extra coconut and chill until firm.

These will keep for up to 2 months in the fridge. DELICIOUS!!!
