Munching on Munchkins

As I explained in my last post I get a lot of people finding my blog as a result of a search engine enquiry for a Munchkins recipe or similar so I thought I would go find a recipe, try it out and report back.

Well I’ve never tried a munchkin before and all of the recipes are American and use different ingredients to what we use here so I had to improvise a bit and also the measurements are a bit different too but here is my take on Munchkins and they look very much like the google images I found so I think it’s about right ;-)

You will need:

3/4 small tin of condensed milk
1 pack of rich tea biscuits ( I used asda basic range)
1 tbsp cocoa powder ( I used Hershey’s)
A few tbsp of dessicated/shredded coconut

* Instead of rich tea and cocoa you could just use chocolate biscuits.

Blend biscuits and cocoa power until fine. Gradually mix in your milk and once well mixed out on the fridge to chill for 10 minutes. Remove from fridge and cover a plate with coconut. Using approx 1tsp of mix roll into a ball and roll in coconut. Place on greaseproof paper on a tray and continue until all mix has been used. Chill for 1 hour.

Verdict : I stuck to just one as I can see how the rich, gooey sweetness could get addictive but definitely an easy to make treat or dessert. I may have another tomorrow ;-)
