When it comes to these easy Milo Balls, I am a true blue Aussie gal!! Yep, I grew up drinking Milo (with wayyyy too many spoonfuls of the good stuff!)… and don’t even get me started on how much I love Milo sprinkled over vanilla ice-cream. It’s totally a thing – and a very yummy thing at that!!

Anyway, this blog already has it’s fair share of Milo-y treats. If you haven’t tried my Microwave Milo & Tim Tam Fudge or my Milo & Malteser Mug Cake at least 10 times, then you’re just not living life to the fullest my friends! Get onto it!!!!

    hi.. can i use crushed nuts or almonds instead of coconuts for both mixed-in ingredient n for the coating?

    1. Lucy says:

      I can’t see why not! The texture will be slightly different though of course!

    Hey Lucy, huge fan and you’re my go to woman for quick easy treats. I’m making lots of stuff for a bake sale and trying to keep costs down. Do you think I could sub Weetbix for biscuits? Also how do you think it would go pressed in a tin for ease of making? I thought I could call them Milo bites? I see your Milo slice but find the condensed milk stuff sells so well.

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Nicole, thank you so much! Yes you absolutely can use biscuits instead! Hmm I can’t see why you couldn’t press it into a tin! I hope you have a super successful bake sale!

  3. Tracy Grimshaw says:

    Hi how much mint eccents do you reckon to splash in to make them mint Milo balls

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Tracy, hmm good question! I’d start with 1-2 drops and then do a taste test and add more if needed.
