You can use any type of plain biscuit (such as Arnott’s Marie Biscuits) to make these Milo Balls.
We recommend using desiccated coconut, if you use shredded coconut the consistency of the balls will be different and you will find it harder to cover the balls in coconut.
While I normally roll these Milo Balls in coconut once rolled, you can also roll them in Milo Powder to give them an even bigger Milo hit.
