Happy Australia Day!

Last year, on the Facebook Page, I introduced my new creation of a great Aussie classic with an updated twist. It was so popular that I’m now sharing it onto the website to help you all celebrate our National Day tomorrow.

Start by crumbling up a sponge cake into a bowl & mixing through 1/2 cup of vanilla frosting (Both can be bought from the shop ready made to save time if that floats your boat).

Pinch off bits of mixture & roll into balls. Pop them on a baking paper lined tray & bung in the freezer for an hour.

Melt some good quality dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat & start rolling your frozen balls in the hot chocolate before then rolling through desiccated coconut on a plate.

Return the balls to the freezer for a few minutes to set the chocolate before devouring greedily this Australia Day.
