Chocolate peppermint balls

As promised here are the chocolate peppermint balls.    I have to confess that this mix doesn't hold it's shape as well as the cherry ripe chocolate balls did, you can find the recipe for the cherry ripe choc balls here   I added another five crushed chocolate ripple biscuits to the mix and they still need to be kept in the fridge or they will go too soft.    On the good side they are dark, rich and full of peppermint flavour, very moorish. I do prefer the cherry ripe chocolate balls though, but, this is just a personal choice.

Chocolate peppermint balls:
1 pk. chocolate ripple biscuits (I added another 5)
5-6 chocolate peppermint bars
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 can condensed milk (395g)
coconut to coat
Place biscuits, peppermint bars and cocoa into the food processor and blitz till fine crumbs. Place into a large bowl and add the condensed milk and mix until combined, it was at this point I realised the mixture was too wet and added more biscuits.  Place the mix in the fridge for 30mins, then roll into small balls, about a teaspoon full, then roll in the coconut.  Store in the fridge.
