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.
