Raspberry Ruffles are a delicious chocolate treat from my childhood. Desiccated coconut, raspberry flavouring and dark chocolate combine to make Raspberry Ruffles.
It is quick to make a delicious homemade version. Jelly powder provides the raspberry flavour. Simply combine the desiccated coconut and jelly powder with condensed milk and sugar to create the flavoured filling. Then coat that filling with coat it with your preferred dark chocolate.
Desiccated coconut is used for the paste, although it can be ground a little for a finer result. Although I used 2 packets of raspberry jelly powder the amount required is a matter of taste. Certainly just one packet would give a good result. Condensed milk binds the ingredients creating a paste. The paste is used to form into balls. Then chocolate coats the balls, creating the raspberry ruffles.
My ruffles had the perfect texture. They tasted so good and were so easy to make. Although I made them for myself they are perfect as little Christmas gifts. Personally, I kept these to myself.
Another easy chocolate treat is Chocolate Caramel Bars.
