A truffle is a soft sweet, made with a chocolate mixture, and added flavours, often served as dessert; (not to be confused of course, with the expensive fungus delicacy, of the same name which is used in cooking.)
Chin-chin is a popular snack in Nigeria, made by deep frying a sweetened dough mixture. As part of my journey discovering new ways of serving Nigerian food, I have done a few things with chin-chin such as adding to desserts as a base or just to add some texture crunch...
Chin chin could be quite versatile depending on how imaginative you are in the kitchen. (Check out all of my chin chin recipes here.)
So my newest creation, Chin Chin Truffles are so easy to make and are delicious to eat. They come in handy to serve to guests in combination with other sweets like coconut candy.
Check out how to make some below.
What you need
Good quality chin chin extra crunchy. You can buy some in the store or make some (recipe here)

What to do
Place the chin chin into a plastic bag and using a rolling pin, crush into fine small pieces. You can also use a food processor to achieve the same outcome.
Transfer the crushed chin chin into a bowl and add the condensed milk and melted white chocolate. Stir all ingredients together until well combined. The result should be stiff mixture. (Adjust stiffness by adding more or less condensed milk.
Then with slightly moistened hands, take a little quantity at a time and roll into balls....(or use a mould to achieve what ever shape you prefer.
Chill before serving
