Baking Christmas Truffles with kids

This is a great recipe for kids 3 years and up, I saw this in a Christmas book and had to give it a try and they look great. They taste just fine but do remember they are not real truffels!

250g Digestive biscuits
125g butter (go for unsalted, the biscuits have enough salt in them)
4 tablespoons of honey
4 tablespoons of cocoa
4 tablespoons of coconut (more for texture than flavour)

Melt the butter in a pan (do it slowly as not to burn it)
Get the kids to crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs and help them to count the amount of tablespoons for each ingredient and let then mix it up.
Once the butter has melted add it to the mixture (that is mums or dads job).

Place the lot of it to a flat pan and let it cool.

This is the fun bit, the kids love it too ;)
Cut a small square (adult job)  (but you may find it crumbles) and squish it into a ball, any size you like then roll it in a topping of your choice. We used chocolate sprinkles, cocoa (but get decent cocoa the cheaper stuff is not nice as I discovered), crushed hazelnuts and coconut.
