Makes approx 50

A twist on cake-pops, these yummy bites are made of crushed digestive biscuits. The coatings can be either chocolate, crushed nuts or dessicated coconut. Ideal sweets for your Eid plate.

Ingredients
1
packet Digestive biscuits
(about 20-23 pieces)
5 tbsp.
Cadbury's cocoa powder
5 tbsp.
desiccated coconut
1/2 tin
condensed sweet milk
(approximately, you might need less)
Instructions 

Crush the biscuits either by putting them in a bag and smashing them with a rolling pin or by using a processor. Add the cocoa powder, condensed sweet milk and the desiccated coconut. Mix everything together until the mixture resembles a dough that can be easily formed into balls. Make sure you add the sweet milk a little at a time whilst mixing, stop when you feel you can form balls out of the mixture easily. If you accidentally add too much condensed milk, then you can always add a bit more coconut or digestives to compensate.

Once all are shaped, roll them in a coating of your choice. You can melt some chocolate and dip them into it (chill the Choco balls first if you are coating with chocolate then use a skewer to hold them whilst you dip) or you can roll them in some more desiccated coconut, or in crushed nuts of your choice. You can even leave them plain.

Enjoy! :)

What are you using in place of the cocoa?

Assalamualaikum a very nice recipe ,thanx a lottttt

Ms. Fauzia,

Should I use sweetened or unsweetened dessicated coconut?
Also, if I don't have, can I use shredded coconut?

Thank you!

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You can use unsweetened (because the sweet milk and crushed biscuits are already sweet enough). And yes you can use shredded coconut but if it is freshly grated, please dry it slightly in the oven so there is no excess moisture in the mixture.

Also,
Can I use glucose biscuits like parle g if I don't have digestive bisquits?

Thanks again!

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can!

Salaams,
Love your recipes, have tried a few!
Want to make these for my Eid plate :)
Approximately how many chocoballs will I get from the above measurement?
Thanx!

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam and thank you! I have never really counted but you should easily get around 30 chocoballs, depending on the size you make them.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, no need to bake them, just refrigerate or even store them in a an airtight jar for up to a week.

Can we use marie biscuits instead of digestive biscuits?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can.

W/Salaam, yes you can omit coconut. Thanks for the lovely feedback on the singaporean rice. :)

Salam!i tried chocoballs but it didn't come out well.The sweetness was less and the taste was full of marie biscuit :(

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, strange..maybe the mixture required more sweet milk.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, yes I guess that should be ok.

assalam..can i use nestle cocoa powder instead of cadburry? thanks a lot

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Any melted baking or eating chocolate will work.

do we need candy coating chocolate or any melted baking chocolate will work?

Assalamualaikm.. I tried chocoballs i loved it.. i want to know how to make a chocolate mousse cake can u pls help me sis...

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Type chocolate mousse cake in the search bar and you will find the recipe, it is in the cakes folder.

Aoa,
I have tried this recipe. The taste was simply amazing and i totally loved these chocobalss.
But there are few questions. The balls were really soft. When i rolled them into any shape after a minute or two they just become flat. Finally i froze them and then coated them with chocolate. What may be the reason for the soft balls?
Secondly mixture was so sticky.. Is it normal or balls were soft?
Can you give any tip for neat chocolate coating?
Hope to hear from you soon.
JazakAllah o khair :)

Sounds like you used less biscuits. Simply crush some more biscuits and add them in. Mix and keep adding gradually until you can shape the balls and they remain firm. :)

Can I use Oreos instead? If I can, how many do I use and do I have to make any adjustments to the other measurements? :)

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can use oreos in which case you will not need to add the chocolate powder as they are already chocolate cookies. And since oreos have some cream in their centres, you may not need as much sweetened condensed milk to bind the mixture. So add very gradually. My only concern is that they may end up being too sweet. But if you have an intense sweet tooth then go for it. :)

Can we use cadbury drinking chocolate instead of Cadbury cocoa powder?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can although bear in mind drinking chocolate powder is normally sweetened, so the results might end up being a bit too sweet.

1/2tin of condense milk is equal how many table spoon?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Not sure how many tbsp, just measure half a cup...about 100ml. :)

So What is cadbury cocoa powder? Is something different from normal cocoa powder ?
