Recipe type: Desserts & Confectionary
Cuisine: World
Yield: 12
  • 100 gms Marie Biscuit or any other cream-less biscuit or wafers
  • 100 gms almonds
  • ½ cup condensed milk (approx half of a 400 gm tin)
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp vanilla sugar or plain castor sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut/ dried coconut powder/ unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Equipment Used:
  • Saucepan
  • Processor/Chopper
  1. Powder the biscuits in a processor or place them in a clean ziplock/kitchen towel and bash them with a rolling pin. Empty into a mixing bowl.
  2. Powder the almonds as well. Reserve 2 tbsp of the almond meal and add the rest to the biscuit powder. Mix them up.
  3. Mix the reserved almond meal and the coconut in a plate and keep aside.
  4. Place all the other ingredients in a saucepan - the condensed milk, the butter, sugar, honey and cocoa - and place over medium heat to melt.
  5. Cook, stirring continuously, just until all the ingredients have melted and combined well to form a ganache-like mixture or a thick chocolate sauce.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the sauce over the biscuit & almond meal mixture. Mix it all up using a metal spoon.
  7. Line a baking tray with butter paper or parchment paper.
  8. Taking heaped tablespoons of the chocolate mixture, roll them into balls. Roll each ball in the almond-coconut mixture plate to coat it and arrange on the baking tray.
  9. Loosely cover with foil and place in the refrigerator to chill and set.
  10. The chocolate balls are ready to consumed within 1 hour of setting. Serve them as is, or covered in pretty foil paper like chocolates or crumble into a decadent ice cream sundae with more nuts and chocolate sauce/ caramel sauce.
  11. The remaining chocolate balls, if any, should be stored in an airtight jar in the fridge until consumed.
