Quick Fix Desserts: Easy Chocolate Truffles

 I know you love them too, something easy and delicious, I always fall for these kinds of recipe, hehe.

 Because, there's a time that we just want to eat something sweet but don't want to move, haha. For me, I love to eat a digestive biscuit, so thinking about turning it into any kinds of dessert is a good idea. 
This truffle is very, very easy, the base of the truffle is the delicious digestive biscuit, ^^, just crushed them and mix with other ingredients, that's all!!!! But don't underestimate it, the truffle is delicious with a bit of crunchy texture and sweet aroma from any kind of liqueur that you use. You can use different liqueur for different taste, for example, you want mocha truffle, use Kahlúa, or use some fruit extract if you don't want to put alcohol into the truffles. 
For the percentage of the chocolate, if you use 70% the truffles will be firmer and dryer (you may need to reduce the biscuits to 60-65g) but more intense, so everything is up to YOU ^^.
