Surprise Choc Ripple & Malteser Balls

It’s not often that I get this excited about a recipe (actually, that’s a lie – I’m a pretty excitable person!).. BUT I am really, really super-duper excited about this one! So you know how good rum balls (or chocolate coconut balls) are? Well these are seriously better. No joke. OMG I know that’s a HUGE call isn’t it. But it’s a call I’m totally going to make.

But getting back on track! You only need 4 ingredients to make these crazy-good bites of chocolate heaven:

Malteser Balls

  • condensed milk
  • Maltesers
  • coconut to roll the balls in

These Surprise Choc Ripple & Malteser Balls are going to be ready in about 10 minutes – which is less time than it takes me to iron my clothes (although if we’re being truthful, I’m a terrible ironer and try to avoid it whenever possible!!).

Ugh sorry! I am definitely getting off track today. Back to the Malteser balls. Ok, all you need to do is crush the biscuits nice and finely (a food processor, Thermomix or a good old fashioned rolling pin will do the trick). Add in the condensed milk (lick the spoon) and mix well together (and lick the spoon again). Roll the mixture into balls, flatten down, place a Malteser in the middle (eat 3 Maltesers), shape into a ball to cover the Malteser and then roll in coconut. Repeat… but this time eat 4 Maltesers.

These are the perfect little things to whip up when you’re running short on time. They also make a great lunchbox treat (ahem… I mean a ‘hide in the fridge and gobble when no-one’s looking treat’). Or if you’re super nice, you could make a big batch and give them away to family and friends as a yummy foodie gift. Now wouldn’t that be nice!

  10. Maria says:

  11. Rebecca says:

    Hello there, I was wondering what are the Chocolate Biscuits and where can I find them in the store. Thank you and they look absolutely delicious! Can’t wait to make them

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Rebecca, I just used Arnott’s Chocolate Ripple biscuits, but any plain chocolate biscuit will work fine!

  12. A James says:

    for the adults can rum be added to the condensed milk and choclolate biscuit crumbs

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely!!!

  13. Ginette Fortier says:

    Can they be put in freezer

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hmm I can’t see why not!

  14. Anna says:

    I made these and they were delicious! But my mixture firmed up so much, the blades on my Thermomix wouldn’t turn and it was really thick and sticky and I couldn’t get all out and the balls weren’t sealing around the Maltesers. I tried adding some more condensed milk to loosen it a bit but no good so I added some normal milk… Obviously wasn’t a great ending. So amazingly yum though! Can you give me a hint how to avoid this next time? I only made about 6 balls and then the rest pretty much went to waste because I’d added the milk… Such a shame!!! Would love to give them a go again, so easy and quick.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Anna, it is a super sticky recipe!!! I find that using the spatula while the machine is going (and also stopping it every once in a while to give the sides a good scrape down helps). Also your blades might need a sharpen perhaps?! xx

  15. catherine says:

    My step dad is allergic to coconut, do you think i could roll the balls in sprinkles or what would you recommend?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely! Or even Milo or drinking chocolate powder 🙂

  16. Gynnie says:

    Hi there.

    Instead of the condensed milk can I use butter instead.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi there, you could try but I’m not sure if it would be sticky enough to hold together!

  17. Christine says:

    Not sure if this sweetened condensed milk.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Christine, yes it is sweetened condensed milk xx

      1. Christine says:

        Thank you. . Have to try these they look delicious

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Thank you!
