Biscuit and Cocoa Dessert

This dessert is quite popular in different parts of the world under different names: for instance, in Eastern Europe it’s known as a ‘potato‘ while in the Arab world, it’s called a chocolate biscuit dessert.  Regardless of the name, the point is this is a delicious and easy to make dessert that requires ZERO cooking (as in ‘stove/oven cooking’). You’ll need: 500 gr social biscuits (the very plain ones, no flavor, no filling), walnuts, raisins, rum, vanilla, milk and of course, cocoa (powder).

Instructions:

  1. Break the social biscuits with your fingers. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Soak raisins into rum for 10-15 minutes.
  3. For extra taste, warm up the walnuts in a frying pan.
  4. Pour some milk over the biscuits and, using a fork, mash/crush the biscuits until you get a thick paste (add milk gradually, you do not want to have a watery paste but a very thick one).
  5. Add walnuts, raisins with rum, vanilla and 1-2 tablespoons cocoa. Mix.
  6. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes .
  7. Take out from the fridge. Prepare a separate plate with 1-2 tablespoons cocoa. Using a spoon, shape the mixture into balls then roll them in the cocoa powder. Place on a separate plate, cover and refrigerate. Serve cold.
