Festive season is coming up and we are ready to celebrate with some delicious sweets and savory snacks. 

Making Indian sweets is often a long drawn process with complex ingredients and procedures. But some sweets can be made REALLY quickly with a handful of ingredients.

These truffles are just PERFECT for any celebration. An adaptation of a recipe my grandmother and mom made every Diwali; these recipe was always made by eyeballing the ingredients. I finally documented it with measured out ingredients. 

The recipe that inspired this was in the magazine that came home each festive season sponsored by Milk-Maid; a popular Indian condensed milk brand. It is at least 30 years old; and my family has been making it ever since.  

What are Marie Biscuit Chocolate Truffles?

This version of truffles is an instant, no-cook and delicious one.

Marie Biscuits are a popular type of Indian tea time biscuits. They taste great with some masala chai and work GREAT in this recipe.

They are soft and can be processed quickly. They are mixed with condensed milk, cocoa powder and rolled into tight balls. This combination is SO good and super addictive. 

These truffles can be rolled in various toppings and enjoyed straight from there. 

A great sweet for any celebration or dessert table, these truffles have been my favorite for years and finally they are on the blog.

Ingredients for Easy Marie Chocolate Truffles


Marie Biscuits: A popular brand of Indian biscuits, Marie is my preferred one for this recipe.

Light colored soft biscuits, these are a great canvas to infuse the flavors of your choice. However, using graham crackers or any type of digestive biscuits is a great idea too.

Condensed Milk: Used to sweeten the dessert, sweetened condensed milk is required for this recipe. 

Some versions show how milk and sugar can be used, but I have not tried that. I always use condensed milk to make it super quick.

Cocoa Powder: Unsweetened cocoa powder is used in the recipe. It is super fine and mixes well with the ingredients. It adds a hint of chocolate to the recipe. 

Almond: Adding some crunch to the truffles is almond meal. It can be made instantly by processing some almonds or used from the store. 

Semi-Sweet Chocolate: Shredded chocolate is added to the truffles. This adds some more chocolate flavor to the balls. This can be skipped if you do not have it.

Toppings: A variety of toppings can be used in the recipe. I have used shredded coconut, pistachio, edible silver varakh and shredded chocolate. 

These make the truffles delicious and give some crunch to them.

Step by Step Instructions to make 

Prepare the toppings by processing the pistachios to fine powder and grating semi sweet chocolate. Keep them in separate bowls. 

1- Blitz the marie biscuits in a food processor or grinder. These can be ground smooth or left slightly gritty.

Tips and Notes

  • Use any soft biscuit or cracker that crumbles well. Having large bits will not result in smooth truffles.

  • Adjust the condensed milk if you switch the biscuits for a sweeter version.

  • These truffles are great when rolled in nut meals or chocolate. They can be dipped in melted chocolate too. 

  • Refrigerate the truffles till a few minutes before serving.
