3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter

Place the cocoa powder, butter and condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes or until mixture starts to come away from sides of the pan.

Remove from heat and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, using your hands, shape mixture into walnut-sized balls.

Roll in chocolate sprinkles (or coating of your choice), then place in patty cases.

Eat immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
