Happy Monday! Today I’ve got the lovely Victoria from Boiled Eggs and Soliders sharing her yummy recipe for Milo Balls. Victoria shares both conventional and Thermomix recipes on her site along with reviews and stories and she also co-hosts a weekly recipe link up called Your Weekly Feed (which kicks off each Thursday night) which is full of great meal and snack ideas for the whole family – what a busy lady! You can find out more via the website, Facebook Page, Pinterest and Instagram.
I’m delighted to be here today sharing this super easy old time classic, fun recipe, Milo Balls. I had long forgotten about these little balls of deliciousness, usually I’m focussed on creating or adapting new recipes myself that tend to be on the healthy side of things, until my Mother in Law brought over some that she had been given. My mantra is everything in moderation, I’m all for “sometimes” treats and I think that everyone should have some Milo Ball memories as part of their life. Were Milo Balls featured in your childhood?
They are made with just 4 ingredients and no baking is required so they are a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen too (if you don’t mind a bit of mess!).
We had all the extended family over the other week so we made Milo Balls that were a hit with the young, the old and the in between! They are great little lunch box, morning tea or afternoon tea snacks too. My girls have been enjoying them with their favourite drink of the moment – Strawberry Iced Tea (because it’s pink of course!!)
- 250 grams Milk Arrowroot Biscuits
- 395 grams 1 tin Condensed Milk
- 4 Tbsp Milo
- Dessicated Coconut For Rolling I like to get organic dessicated coconut as it doesn’t have the added sulphites that the supermarket ones do but that’s just a personal preference.
- In a blender blitz the biscuits until they are like fine breadcrumbs (Thermomix Speed 5 / 5 seconds)
- Combine the blitzed biscuits, milo and condensed milk together in a bowl (Thermomix Reverse / Speed 4 / 5 seconds)
- Scoop out teaspoon sized bits of the mixture and shape into balls and then roll in the dessicated coconut so that they are coated.
- Put on a plate and then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm
Milo Balls Tips
- The mixture is quite sticky so you may need to rinse off your hands every so often
- Keep in the fridge until ready for eating or they can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 1 month but I guarantee they won’t last that long!
