Updated: Aug 24, 2021

Keep kids busy by making easy 4 ingredients Chocolate Coconut Truffles. No cooking required; only little helping hands needed. Yummylicious...

This is a great recipe to introduce kids to making food and building their confidence in the kitchen or a fun holiday project. Requires simple tools like a mixing bowl, wooden spoon, ziplock bag, and a rolling pin (my personal favourite, wink... wink...). Don't worry, we won't be breaking any bones. Instead, we will be bashing biscuits into small pieces. A fantastic stress reliever for grown-ups and fun for kids resulting in delicious chocolate coconut truffles to enjoy.

Although it may sound like kids will love these the most, let me give you an insider secret, adults are more likely to get hooked on to these irresistible truffles. If you don't believe then why not put it to test yourself. Do drop in a line or two in the comments on your experience.

Here are 4 basic ingredients that are easily found in every (Q)kitchen to make delicious Chocolate Coconut Truffles.

Marie/Maria Biscuits, Desiccated Coconut, Cocoa Powder, and Condensed Milk

Stages of Making - 6 Simple and quick steps

1. Crushing

Place Marie biscuits in the zip lock bag. Remove any air from the bag and seal the bag. With help of a rolling pin crush the biscuits by beating or rolling action.

Note: Do not over crush biscuits. Little chunks of biscuits give a crunchy bite to the truffles.

2. Adding

Add all the ingredients (crushed biscuits, desiccated coconut, cocoa powder, and condensed milk) in a mixing bowl.

3. Mixing

Mix all the ingredients with the help of a wooden spoon or use your good hands for mixing. I let my kids do this fun part. They love to get their hands dirty.

4. Rolling

To make even size truffle balls, use a spoon or ice cream scoop to measure an equal amount of mixture. Ensure you fill the spoon/scoop completely and level it by removing any excess from the top of the spoon/scoop (as shown in photos below). Drop the mixture from spoon/scoop onto your greased palm and roll it into balls.

5. Coating

Spread desiccated coconut on a flat plate/tray. Place freshly rolled truffles on desiccated coconut and roll. Due to the stickiness of truffles, coconut will stick to the surface of the truffle balls. Repeat this with the rest of the truffle balls and place them on another clean tray.

6. Refrigerating

Place tray of rolled truffle balls covered with desiccated coconut in the fridge to set for an hour. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

Can one use a food processor to crush biscuits?

I prefer to crush biscuits with a rolling pin as I can control how small to crush plus kids love to have a hands-on fun experience. However, you can use a food processor as long as you pulse it and not ground it to a fine powder. Little biscuit chunks in the truffle give a good bite texture.

Other biscuit options?

Marie biscuits are the best for this recipe and I believe these are easily available everywhere. Having said that, you can also use digestive biscuits or any plain sweet biscuits.

Truffle ball coating variations

Desiccated coconut gives that beautiful snowflake look and tastes delicious. There are many other coating options like crushed almonds, crushed green pistachios, cocoa powder, etc. Make a mix with different types of coating to and add variety to your treat platter.

Can Chocolate Coconut Truffles be made ahead of time? Shelf life?

These can certainly be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.

Store them in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 1.5-2 weeks. Frozen truffles can stay well for 1-2 months. Mine never lasts beyond 3 days. They simply disappear.

Have these as a snack or as an after meal sweet craving satisfier or pack in lunch boxes

Serve them as a party treat.

These are super addictive. Quick, hide it away before it disappears. Don't tell me I didn't warn ya...
