Have a fab weekend everyone!
Little Talks, by Of Monsters and Men.
Sounds completely suss, I know.. but trust me, they’re G.O.O.D.
I know balls like these are normally kept for Christmas time, and admittedly I did first make these for Christmas, but they’re just too yummy not to share.. I’m re-classifying them into the ‘Everyday’ food group. I have no idea where I got the recipe now, but take it and cherish it.
Here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 x 250g packet of Gingernut Biscuits (or ginger flavoured biscuits??)
– 1.5 cups of shredded (desiccated) coconut
– 125g chopped, roasted macadamias
– Glace ginger (or naked ginger).. as much or little as you like chopped finely
– 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
– 60g unsalted butter
– 1 tbs golden syrup
– extra coconut to coat balls
Pulse Gingernuts in a food processor until crushed. Transfer them to a bowl with the chopped macadamias, coconut, and chopped glace ginger and mix. In a small saucepan, combine the condensed milk, butter, and golden syrup. Stir over a low heat until the butter has melted.
Pour the condensed milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Roll teaspoon-full amounts of mixture in your hands to form balls, and roll in the coconut. Make sure you refrigerate the balls for a few hours before eating them.
That’s all there is to it. Easy as! ;)
Did you have a nice weekend? We had a great one, it’s hard to believe it’s Monday again already! It started out with a visit to my friend Sandy’s exhibition opening on Friday night, followed by a lazy Saturday lunch with friends and a trip to Public Garden market, and then a nice relaxed Sunday that finished up with some amazing ramen and a movie (The Impossible in case you’re wondering.. it was horrible).
So, all in all – an awesome weekend (even despite the fact that it was raining almost the whole time!). What did you get up to?
