It's snowing chocolate balls

These chocolate snowballs are delicious as well as very easy to make! Although I still can't manage to make them properly...

Chocolate Snowballs

- 1 packet of plain milk biscuits
- 395 g can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup dessicated coconut
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- extra dessicated coconut in a separate bowl

1. Crush the biscuits in a food processor until they are in fine bits. Pour them into a large bowl.
2. Pour the dessicated coconut into the bowl.
3. Add the 2 tablespoons of cocoa into the bowl. (If it is not enough, more can be added.)
4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk in the bowl.
5. Mix the ingredients. You will find that the mixture will be rather thick, so you will need to use your hands to mush it all together. If it is too dry, add some milk.
6. Roll the mixture into little bite-size balls and place them into the separate bowl containing dessicated coconut. [Here it might be nice to have a friend.] Roll the balls in the coconut.
7. Place the balls onto a serving plate, and share the goodness!

Another young solo sailor

On 21st August 2010, 14 year old Dutch sailor, Laura Dekker, set off on her journey to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.
The trip is expected to last a year or more. Her trip follows Australian Jessica Watson's successful sailing trip around the world, who completed her quest on May 15th 2010.
While Jessica Watson's trip remained at sea for the entire 210 days, Laura Dekker says she may stop at several ports on her way, and may even drop by home to catch up on her studies, before continuing on her journey.
The Guiness World Records and the World's Sailing Speed Record Council have decided not to recognize world's youngest sailors any longer, to avoid encouraging young ones to attempt such dangerous challenges.

I wish the very brave Laura Dekker the best of luck!
