Coconut Chocolate Balls

When my children were younger, I used to organize their birthday parties at home. I would invite all their friends and arranged for a nice party in our garden in Abu Dhabi. In the menu, I used to make these balls, which were very much appreciated by everybody. My children, who still like them until now, reminded me of them this summer as I was preparing for my grandson’s birthday; he loves them now too. As for myself, I still like making them because no baking is needed and they’re quick to do.


  • 2 cups grounded biscuits (use any kind you like: petite beurre, digestive etc..)
  • 1 cup, shredded coconut + extra for coating
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cup condensed sweetened milk


  • Mix all the ingredients (except the coconut) together, knead until you have a smooth dough and not sticky
  • Take a small amount of the dough and roll it in you hands to form a ball shape then roll it into the coconut
