Chocolate Balls Recipe

I was first introduced to these as monkey balls, donkey nuts.  Since then depending on the size there is a different name

Either way the Guides always enjoy making this simple recipe.  The balls have actually been used as Gifts, taken pre-made
on camp, at discos, parties and as patrol activities.


  • 1 packet Girl Guide Plain Biscuits
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • Approx 2 cups of desiccated coconut


  1. Place Girl Guide biscuits into a plastic bag, tied and placed into another plastic bag.  This plastic bag is tied well as well.
  2. Now using a rolling pin crush the biscuits.
  3. Once to a consistent texture pour into a medium size bowl.
  4. Add cocoa and stir.
  5. Pour in condensed milk and combine thoroughly.
  6. Pour coconut into a shallow bowl.
  7. Using a tablespoon of mixture, roll into ball then drop into coconut and cover completely.
  8. Place chocolate ball into a container and continue making balls until you have used all the mixture.
  9. Place in an airtight container in the fridge until set.
  10. They are kept best in the fridge even once set.

There are other methods to making this recipe.

Have you tried the balls with sprinkles?
