Magic milo balls, a rum ball alternative for kids!

Get cooking with the Grandkids these school holidays and try this fantastic, easy to make recipe! These milo-balls are a great child-friendly substitute for rum balls this Christmas.



  • 1 packet Milk Arrowroot biscuits, crushed
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 4-6 tablespoons Milo
  • shredded coconut, for rolling



  1. Crush the biscuits until small or fine (this works well in a food processor if you have one!). Add the Milo and condensed milk and mix until well combined.
  2. Roll into teaspoon sized balls with your hands (damp hands make the balls easier to handle) and then roll in the shredded coconut to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

*Your hands will get very sticky! Wash your hands in between rolling every 4-5 balls to get the best results.
