Easy Chocolate Coconut Balls

If you’re anything like me, you probably grew up making (and eating) these chocolate coconut balls. We always used to call them Rum Balls, which is kind of funny given that I’ve never once made them with rum (although you totally could add a little bit if you like!).

This is a great recipe for getting the kids to help out in the kitchen. Once the TM has done it’s thing by crushing the biscuits and mixing all of the yummy ingredients together, get the kids involved by rolling the mixture into heaped teaspoon sized balls. These little chocolate coconut balls make a great (and easy!) lunchbox treat. They’re also perfect for nibbling on with a cuppa mid-morning!

These can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week… although I’ve never actually tested that out because ours disappear so quickly!

  1. How long will these balls keep in an airtight tub. I want to use it as a dieting nibble, and as a diabetic snack. I see you do get reduced condense milk, so will use that. Could they be frozen?

      Hi there, yes you can definitely freeze them. Otherwise they’ll last about a week in an airtight container in the fridge. xx
