If you'd rather not have to dirty your food processor, you can crush the wafers by putting them in a large resealable plastic bag (to keep the crumbs from flying) and rolling over them with a rolling pin. They take the place of flour and other dry ingredients in making these no bake balls, which are bound with a chocolate custard mixture that's cooked on the stove (so don't worry, the eggs are not raw).


  • 200 grams Maria wafers (or shortbread cookies)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 100 grams butter
  • 125 grams chocolate powder
  • chocolate sprinkles


  1. Crush cookies in a grinder or with a rolling pin.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Heat egg yolks and sugar in a saucepan and mix well.
  4. Bring to a boil and add butter and chocolate. Stir well.
  5. When mixture begins to simmer, reduce heat and simmer over low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, so that egg yolks cook, but mixture doesn't stick to pan.
  6. Add crushed cookies and mix well.
  7. Let cool slightly.
  8. Grease hands with butter and shape into small balls.
  9. Place cookie balls in cupcake liners.
