Malteser Truffles...

Love Maltesers? Love chocolate?
Then these goodies are for YOU?
I have used my Mama's delicious unbaked slice recipe to encase Maltesers.
Once rolled in balls, dipped some in milk chocolate, as well as dusting some with dark cocoa powder.
In a large pot melt and mix: 
150 grams butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, 3/4 cup caster sugar, and 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder.
Cool slightly, and add two lightly beaten eggs.  Mix well.
Add 250 grams finely crushed plain vanilla biscuits. Mix into the chocolate mixture.
(Note the plastic bag/rolling pin crushing technique.  
One must improvise when the food processor decides to break!)
Mix into the chocolate mixture.
This mixture is quite moist.
Take a malteser...
Use WET hands to encase the Malteser in the mixture...
Roll into balls and place onto wax paper to set.
Melt milk chocolate - and dip...
Leave to set.
Dust some in dark cocoa powder.
