Equipment

  • Food processor or Thermomix

Ingredients

  • 125 g Arnott's chocolate ripple biscuits or any plain sweet chocolate biscuit (see notes)
  • 3 X 35 g Peppermint Crisp bars roughly chopped
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (50g) desiccated coconut
  • 100-150 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup (50g) extra desiccated coconut for rolling
  • 2-3 drops green food colouring
  • extra Peppermint Crisp bars to decorate
  • 150 g milk chocolate melted

Instructions

  • Place the chocolate ripple biscuits and the Peppermint Crisp bars into a food processor and process until they resemble fine crumbs. If using a Thermomix, mix on Speed 8, 5-10 seconds. 
  • Place the mixture into a large bowl and sift over the cocoa powder.
  • Add the desiccated coconut and 100g of condensed milk. Mix together the ingredients. If the mixture is too dry to roll into balls, add a bit more of the condensed milk and mix again. 
  • Roll heaped teaspoons of the mixture into balls. 
  • Place 1/2 cup of the extra coconut into a ziplock bag. Add the green food colouring and shake until the coconut is coloured green. Place into a bowl. 
  • Coat the balls in the green coconut. 
  • Add a small amount of melted milk chocolate to the top of each ball and decorate with a small square of chopped Peppermint Crisp bar. 
  • Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
