Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 18 balls

Ingredients

  • 300 g digestive biscuits note 1
  • 300 mL sweetened condensed milk
  • 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder note 2
  • Shredded coconut for topping optional

Instructions

  • Start by crushing the digestive biscuits into fine crumbs using your food processor. If you don't have a food processor, do this by smashing them in a Ziploc bag until they are fine
  • Mix together the condensed milk and the cocoa powder until the powder is dissolved and well combined. Taste and adjust - if you like a stronger chocolate flavour, add more cocoa.
  • Remove about ¼ cup of the crushed biscuits and set aside for the topping
  • Add in the crushed biscuits and mix well until well combined
  • Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes so it can firm up and become easier to roll
  • Roll about 1 tablespoon of mixture into balls. To avoid it sticking to your hands, dip your hand in a bit of water and spread around your palm, then roll the mixture
  • Roll the balls in your chosen topping (crushed biscuits, shredded coconut, or any other topping)
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge and enjoy!

Notes

  1. You can also use Marie biscuits. Digestive and Marie biscuits I find offer the best flavour, but you can use any other tea biscuit brand as well
  2. If you use unsweetened cacao powder, note that it will be slightly more bitter, therefore you may need to adjust sweetness by adding in a bit of sugar or less cacao
  3. You can freeze these as well on a lined plate. Once they are frozen solid, place them in a Ziploc bag to save space. Enjoy them frozen or thaw slightly before eating
