Chocolate balls

This is the perfect recipe in the lead up to Christmas but I tend to make them all year round and keep them in the freezer.  Chocolate balls make a lovely Christmas gift by placing in a glass jar & wrapping with ribbon, great in lunch boxes, at any party or as an accompaniment with tea & coffee. 

Chocolate balls
  • 1 pkt milk arrowroot biscuits
  • 1 x 230g sponge cake (store bought or home made)
  • 4 cups desiccated coconut (split in recipe)
  • 3 Tbspn cocoa
  • 2 x 400g tins condensed milk
Step 1
Line a large airtight container with baking paper & set aside.

Step 2
Place the biscuits in a zip lock bag & crush with a rolling pin until it resembles crumbs.  This can be done in a food processor or Thermomix to save time.  Transfer crumbs to a large bowl.

Step 3
Break the sponge cake into pieces.  Over the top of the bowl, rub each piece between your palms until it resembles crumbs.

Step 4
Add 2 cups of coconut, cocoa & condensed milk.

Step 5
In a separate bowl, add remaining 2 cups of coconut.  This will be used to coat the balls.

Step 6
Mix the chocolate mixture with your hands until well combined. Wet hands & roll the mixture into balls. Coat with coconut & place in lined container.  Repeat with remaining mixture & refrigerate until balls have set.

In fridge, in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
In freezer, in airtight container for up to  months.
