Hi Lauren, thanks for this recipe, a nice tasty snack. I tried it without coconut at all, it was very sticky, so I should have put more biscuit’s in, anyway they are in the fridge now, hopefully setting!
Can I use Arnott’s Nice biscuits?
I’ve just made these for school lunches. My daughter helped and thought they were yummy. My son loves milo do I’m sure he’ll love them too. I rolled them in milo instead of coconut
Good idea! I tried mine without coconut at all, so they were a bit sticky! I’ll try your trick next time.
Could use activite instead of milo and change the condensed milk to coconut milk?
Hi Teresa, the condensed milk helps to hold the balls together so I don’t think coconut milk would work I’m sorry.
I made these tonight for a work morning tea tomorrow. I doubled the ingredients and made them smaller and it made over 88!
My mum was on quality control duty such means I ended up with 80 Haha
They’re super yummy and took less than 15 mins from start to finish
Wow Theresa, that should keep you guys going for awhile!! Thanks so much for your feedback x
