In Australia, a hedgehog can mean the animal or the treat. Today, I decided to combine the two of them and make hedgehog hedgehogs!
250g plain biscuits, coarsely crushed
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
100g dark chocolate
1 tsbp golden syrup
100g chocolate (for dipping)
100g chocolate chips (for decoration)
Black piping gel
- Combine all the ingredients of the first list together.
- Mold into egg shaped pieces and leave in refrigerator to set for an hour or two or until firm.
- Dip pieces into dark chocolate and decorate with chocolate chips, black piping gel and nuts.
Below is my rough sketch – originally i was going to do a huge one made out of Hershey’s Kisses as well but decided against it due to the sheer amount of chocolate I would have to consume. Might be cool for one of you guys to make it instead though!
