Digestive biscuits: 10
Fresh coconut grated: 5 tbsp
Drinking chocolate: 5 tbsp
Butter(melted): 1tspSweetened Condensed Milk: Just enough to bind together
Finely chopped Cashews: Optional
Crush the digestive biscuits into ﬁne powder. Mix rest of the ingredients with the crushed biscuits. Be careful while putting condensed milk, put just enough to bind the mixture together so that it can be rolled into balls. Spread the ﬁnely chopped cashews in a platter and roll the chocolate balls over it to get a layer of cashews onto them. The chocolate balls can be wrapped and tied into a small bundle of colored cellophane paper and made as an accompaniment with the christmas gift for your family and friends.
BROWN BREAD PUDDING

Orange juice: enough to bind
Brandy: One pouchCastor sugar: 4 tbsp
Icing sugar: 2 tbsp
Drinking chocolate: 4 tbsp
Whipping Cream: 500ml
Strawberries and Chocolate: for decoration
Caramel or Chocolate sauce: optional
Put brown bread in fridge for a day so that it becomes hard. Grind it in the grinder to make bread crumbs. To this add enough orange juice, brandy, castor sugar and drinking chocolate. The mixture should stick to each other in such a way that it can be layered. Add icing sugar to the cream and whip it until is ﬂuffy. Take a rectangular or square dish and layer the bottom with bread crumbs mixture. On top of the mixture put the layer of the whipped cream. Decorate it with chocolate ﬂakes and cut strawberries.
