  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 20 digestive biscuits (crushed into crumbs)
  • 5 tbsp dessicated coconut - plus extra for decorating
  • 5 tbsp drinking chocolate (I use Cadbury - not instant)
  • 75g butter


    1. Melt the butter gently in a pan, and when completely melted, remove from heat.
    2. Stir in the condensed milk until completely mixed, and stir in chocolate and coconut, again until completely mixed.
    3. Stir in the crushed biscuits, about a quarter at a time. This makes it easier. Also, keep an eye on the mixture. If it is too stiff, don't add all of the biscuits, if it's too loose, add a couple more. You should be able to roll it into balls.
    4. Roll into balls, makes around 24 bitesize balls but you can make them any size you like. Roll in the extra coconut and leave to set.

Easy and very tasty. Mines flattened too. I added more digestive biscuits and they were fine. Much easier than the truffles I made with cream chocolate and butter. This recipe is a keeper.

I made these to look like little Christmas puddings, they went down a treat and vanished in minutes. Lots of people asking for the recipe. Will be making these again

Need some help please - I followed the above and my mixture was too soft so the balls kept flattening. I added more dry ingredients but lost the flavour - some help would be greatful

I'm not a cook by any stretch so this isn't a clever-dick kinda comment, but looking at the ingredients and the method the only thing that comes to my mind is are there different size tins of the milk and you've used a large one? Sorry if that's too basic!

Great idea for the Christmas puddings, I am going to try that!

I've been making these for years, absolutely delicious! Definitely don't need to add butter! And instead of using hot chocolate use a good coca powder, yum yum yum!
