Crushed biscuit balls (Γλύκισμα από μπισκόττα)

Another rainy weekend trying to find something for the children stuck indoors to do. A public library Christmas crafts book provided the answer; a simple recipe, no cooking required, for a favorite sweet: chocolate crushed biscuit balls.
In a saucepan, help the children to melt 125g of butter. When it has cooled down a little, add 4 tablespoons of dessicated coconut, 4 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 250g of crushed semi-sweet plain breakfast biscuits. Stir that around really well, and pour the mixture into a square tin to set in the refrigerator. After a couple of hours, cut the set mixture into small squares, and roll each one into a small ball (they are malleable enough at this stage without being too soft). Roll them in your choice of dessicated coconut, chocolate powder, ground nuts or any other crumbly mixture that takes your fancy. For an extra treat, add some brandy to the mixture to make them into liquer balls for serving with adult coffee time!
