I love having something small in the fridge that you can have as a snack when you get the nibbles or even as a small treat for the kids. These kid friendly chocolate coconut balls from Lucy at Play Bake Smile are great for just that.
I started making these last year, they are so quick and easy to make and great as a little bag of treats to give as a gift around Christmas time.
Get the kids involved with the mixing and rolling they will love it.
1 packet dry sweet biscuits such as nice.
1 cup coconut
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
extra coconut for rolling in
Process your biscuits until fine crumb add the cocoa powder and process together in your food processor.
Place crumb/chocolate mix in bowl and add coconut and condensed milk.
Stir until combined.
I use a cookie scoop to scoop the mixture onto a lined baking tray.
With damp hands roll the balls and then roll in coconut.
Set back on the tray and refrigerate for a couple of hours to set.
As I mentioned above, enjoy as a sneaky snack or in the kids lunch boxes or as a gift for friends or guests.
