Seriously delicious, scrumptious, ahh the're all gone we want more - the DS's recreation group just gobbled these up. I did have a hard time rolling them even after letting mix cool down so starting scooping out heaped teaspoons and plonking them into the coconut and then shape them as I rolled them. In all got 29 balls. Thank you darang61 a definite keeper. Made for Edition 2 - Make My Recipe - a game of tag.

These are great and took hardly any time to throw together. I did have to cool my biscuit mix for a while before I rolled into balls as they were a bit sticky to roll. Rather than turn the stove top on and dirty a pot I zapped the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup together in a pyrex jug in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Make sure to use a good quality gingernut for that spicy flavour! Thank darang61, I too will be making these for Christmas.
