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!

Place the biscuits into the TM bowl.
Crush by pressing Turbo 8-10 times or until the biscuits resemble fine crumbs.
Add the cocoa powder, coconut and condensed milk.

Roll in the extra coconut to coat.
