Someone once said “Life is short, eat dessert first” and I absolutely do the same! Be it happiness, or sadness, bad days, or good ones, it’s always a perfect day for a dessert! So here are a few of my go-to dessert recipes which have been a part of my quick dessert menu!

Biscuit chocolate balls (No bake)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6-8 Marie Biscuits
  • 3 teaspoon Condensed Milk
  • 3 teaspoon Cocoa powder

METHOD:

  • In a small mixie jar or food processor, coarsely powder the biscuits.
  • Transfer the powdered biscuits to a bowl; add the condensed milk and cocoa powder and mix well to form an even mixture.
  • Shape the mixture into balls and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Garnish with your choice of toppings. You may use desiccated coconut, Gems, chocolate chips, or any other coloured sugar toppings.
