  2. Roll mixture into bite-sized balls.

  • Same as mine although I use milk arrowroot biscuits…delish thanks for sharing.


  • Thank you for providing this, has been pinned for later.


  • Thanks for posting your recipe. Looks so yummy. Reminds me of my childhood.


  • This is the second recipe for these I’ve found on here. So delicious and don’t last long in my home


  • Nice and easy. Thanks for the recipe. Yum.


  • A recipe that will look impressive when visitors come over for afternoon tea or when you have to “take a plate” to a function, without the fuss of …my kind of recipe, easy but looks great.


  • yummo chocolatey goodness! many versions of this recipe and it can be very versatile. Thanks for posting, these look good


  • Like that they’re not rum balls. I’d have to add a splash of rum though :)


  • These sound yummy. Would be a great lunchbox treat.


  • Nice Sweet Sprouts – like your thinking!


  • Old fashioned, traditional and always reliable yummy coconut balls – love them!


  • Yum. Nice and simple and very tasty! Will definitely give this a try.


  • This is a great recipe for kids to get in and help with, a great tip is to wet hands before trying to roll into balls, makes it much easier to get coconut to stick also you get more balls as you dont eat it off your hands to try and get it off. hehe, I also put the coconut into a freezer bag and drop the balls into the bag and roll around to coat with coconut you can do 2-3 balls at a time if you want, Try adding some chopped up glace cherries to it, but dont need them, use chocolate ripples for a more chocolatey taste, heaps of bickies work good but the original recipe is great.

    • oh great thinking 99! that would be a cool way to coat these, in a bag.


  • I have a similar Chocolate Truffles recipe.


  • There are many recipes out there for chocolate balls. This is not the most healthy recipe with a tin condensed milk added. I wouldn’t make this or give this to my children.
