If I had to choose just one lolly to eat for the rest of my life, Clinkers would definitely be close to the top of my list! My mum always used to buy a pack of Clinkers for my birthday parties, and one of my favourite activities was trying to guess which colour was inside – they always seemed to be yellow or green, and very rarely the elusive pink Clinkers that we were after!
These Clinkers truffles are a delicious way of enjoying one of my favourite sweets and are guaranteed to be a hit with your friends and family – if you choose to share them, that is! All you need to make these are plain biscuits, condensed milk and Clinkers. You can then roll them in desiccated coconut to ‘pretty’ them up a little if you wish, but they are still yummy without.
The mixture is quite sticky, but you can help to minimize mess by wetting your hands with a little water before you start. Another great thing about this recipe is that it only uses 200g Clinkers, which means you will have a few left in the packet to ‘taste test’ – perfect!

Prep time: 30 mins
Chill time: 1 hr to firm
Total time: 1 hr 30 mins
- 250g plain biscuits
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 200g Clinkers, roughly chopped
- 400g tin sweetened condensed milk
- Use a food processor or a rolling pin to crush the biscuits, then place into a large bowl. Place the coconut into a separate bowl and set aside until needed.
- Add chopped clinkers and condensed milk to the bowl with the crushed biscuits.
- Use a spoon to mix the ingredients together until completely combined – don’t worry, the mixture will be sticky.
- Use a tablespoon to scoop up the mixture, then, using slightly damp hands, roll into balls. Roll the balls in the coconut to coat and place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
- Once all the mixture has been used, place the Clinkers truffles into the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
- Keep your Clinkers truffles in an airtight container in your fridge.
- To help stop the mixture from sticking to your hands when rolling the balls, lightly wet your hands first.
- You may get more or less than 30 truffles depending on the size of the balls.
- I used Marie biscuits to make this recipe.
