Daft name, I know. I asked my granny (a retired chef) what they actually were and she said they were a kind of truffle (the choccy sweet, not the fungus). I looked up truffles and they are made from cream, sugar and grated chocolate. They are NOTHING like these. I guess Granny was bluffing. So I am going to stick to the daft name above until someone has a better suggestion.
