Sweet coconut treats, perfect to share or give as a gift
- 125g rich tea biscuits
- 125g almonds
- 75g icing sugar
- Zest of 1 orange
- 3 tbsp rum (optional), or orange juice
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 175g white chocolate
- 100g desiccated coconut
Whizz the rich tea biscuits and almonds in a food processor until they are finely ground. Add the icing sugar and orange zest, then pulse until it's all combined.
In a small bowl, combine the rum ( if using) or orange juice with golden syrup, and while the food processor is still running, pour the liquid into the biscuits mixture. Continue to blend until the mixture is just moist.
Using a teaspoon to measure, shape the mixture into 25-30 balls. Love to set on a baking sheet.
Melt the white chocolate in a bowl in the microwave on a low power. Microwave at 30 second intervals to ensure the chocolate does not burn.
Place the coconut into the separate bowl. First dip the balls in the me,red white chocolate, then in the coconut to cover. Return to the baking sheet and once all the balls are covered, place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set
