Chocolate Balls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Magpie 025

A variation on the rum balls without the rum! Kids (& adults) will love them. I have made this recipe since I was a little girl and they are still a family favourite. Great for picnics, parties and even Christmas - and as gifts. The recipe is easy to make double batches for larger crowds!

We call these snowballs here, and they are YUMMY!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (250 g) packet Marie biscuits (if you use the whole biscuit pkt you may need a little more condensed milk, otherwise take out 2 or ) or 1 (250 g) packetother biscuits (if you use the whole biscuit pkt you may need a little more condensed milk, otherwise take out 2 or )
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 (395 g) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup coconut, for rolling

Directions

  1. Crush the biscuits leaving a few little chunks for texture.
  2. Add cocoa, coconut and mix well.
  3. Add condensed milk trying to wet as much of the biscuit mixture as possible.
  4. Mix well with a spoon - when all done you may need to use your hands to mix completely.
  5. Roll into small balls and if you like roll into the extra coconut. (very messy and needs to be done fairly quickly to avoid drying out).
  6. Can be eaten straight away or put in fridge for a little while to cool.
  7. Leftovers (if there are any!) must be kept in fridge because of the condensed milk.
