Cranberry Christmas truffles


Cranberry Christmas truffles
  • 1/2 cup dried milk powder
  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 4 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • cocoa and icing sugar, to coat truffles


  • 1
    Place the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
  • 2
    Heat the milk and butter together very gently until the butter melts. Do not boil.
  • 3
    Pour this over the cocoa mixture. Mix well together. If the mixture is too weak, add a little more milk powder.
  • 4
    Roll into small balls, about walnut size – these truffles are rich. Roll them in the additional cocoa or icing sugar and then gently cover.
  • 5
    Store in the fridge in an airtight container to be eaten when desired.


Make the same truffle and roll in coconut for a taste sensation that’s just as good!
