This is my mother-in-law's recipe (tweaked just a little).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb coffee biscuit (any plain cookie will work, I like to use a shortbread)
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons rum (optional)
  • 1 cup coconut


  1. Roll biscuits/cookies until fine crumbs form.
  2. Stir in cocoa, condensed milk, and rum.
  3. Allow to stand about 10 minutes for liquids to be absorbed into crumbs. If the mixture is too thin, more crumbs may be added, but the mixture will remain very sticky.
  4. Drop spoonfuls into bowl of coconut and roll carefully to coat.
  5. Place in container and store in refrigerator.
