Slovak Coconut Balls

This is a recipe I got from my boyfriends mum. This was the biggest hit of them all at Christmas AND there is no cooking or baking required :))))

1 packet sponge fingers (175g) - crushed
1 packet tea biscuits (200g) - crushed
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp jam (flavour of choice)
1 1/4 cup cold coffee
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup sweet liqueur (liqueur flavour of choice
3 1/2 Tbsp(approximated) crushed nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnut, or a mixture of various nut together)
Crushed coconut - enough to cover balls

- Mix both biscuit types together in a bowl
- pour coffee over top, then pour in liqueur
- add jam, honey, raisins, and nuts
IMPORTANT NOTE : nuts must be added last....the amount will determined by texture. Put enough to be able to roll mixture into balls.
- Stir all ingredients together
- Roll mixture into balls just a bit smaller than the size of a golf ball. The roll into coconut to cover whole surface of each ball.
