Chocolate Baci and Pink Princess Ponsiettas

My recipe for Chocolate Baci contain no sugar and no butter, ideal for any celebration. Typically here, condensed milk is used to sweeten and bind the chocolate but you will not notice the difference with this recipe!

You will need:

2 pkts Morning Coffee biscuits
4tbsp cocoa powder
100g crushed hazelnuts
50g whole hazelnuts
2 tbsp ground hazelnuts
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp brandy/rum
100ml skimmed milk
200g melting chocolate
4tbsp ground coconut

1. Crush the biscuits very finely.

2. In a bowl mix together the biscuits, cocoa powder, crushed hazelnuts, coconut, honey, rum and skimmed milk. Mix well.

3. Bind the mixture into very small balls. On top of every ball put a hazelnut.

4. Leave to set for 4 hours before you cover using the melting chocolate.

And I have been treated to the hottest flowers of the season with this lovely bright shocking pink Princess Ponsietta. I just love it, a change from the traditional red or white, so pretty …
