Recipe: 4 ingredient Milo Balls

Kinderling News & Features

These yummy four ingredient Milo balls are based on an easy rum ball recipe, and all you need to do is substitute the cocoa for Milo – how easy is that?!

As there are only four ingredients needed to make them, it’s a great recipe to make with the kids. My boys love making these, especially when it comes time to lick off the mixture stuck to their hands after rolling the balls!! Along with taking no time at all to make, I also love that these Milo balls are freezer friendly, I usually pop them into a ziplock bag and store in the freezer until needed. Otherwise, they last seven days in the fridge in an airtight container. They are perfect for any occasion including birthday parties, Christmas, Easter, and they are also a yummy lunchbox treat for the kids.

While I normally roll these in coconut once rolled, you can also roll them in Milo powder to give them an even bigger Milo hit.  If you try this, I’d love to hear what you think!

  • 250g packet plain biscuits
  • 395g tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup (100g) desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup (45g) Milo powder

  1. Place the biscuits into a food processor and blitz until they are finely crumbs. Transfer into a large bowl. Crush the biscuits in a food processor until they resemble fine crumbs. Place into a large bowl. (No food processor? No worries! Just pop the biscuits into a large ziplock bag and bang/roll them into crumbs with a heavy rolling pin.)
  2. Add the condensed milk, coconut and Milo powder and mix until well combined.
  3. Use a teaspoon to scoop up the mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the extra coconut and place on a plate. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used.
  4. Place the Milo balls into the fridge for one hour to chill.
