Chocolate Fruit Mince Bites
This recipe came about because I'd made some Shortbread Biscuits but unfortunately had a few breakages, so they couldn't be gifted. I checked out my Christmas supplies in the pantry and using some of the staples I always stock up on at this time of year, came up with these delicious treats! They are delicious and divine and very, very sweet! They are so quick to make and don't even require baking - these little treats simply are like Christmas in your mouth!
Ingredients (makes 24)
200g dark chocolate, melted
150g plain or spiced biscuits, chopped (I used spiced shortbread, but something like Nice biscuits are fine)
100g fruit mince (home-made or make your own from Charlie's dried fruit)
30g desiccated coconut
150g condensed milk
Mix together all ingredients until well combined.
Press into 2 silicone mini muffin pans and refrigerate for 1 hour. Turn out and top with festive M&Ms, sprinkles, cocoa, icing sugar or coconut.
