My boys have been embracing the no-bake goodness of late, and in addition to the Apricot slice, we have found this little recipe, which is proving a winner!
Making a double batch gets us through the week for lunch box treats (plus the odd snack with a cuppa here and there!)
The boys found the recipe on www.allrecipes.com.au and have dubbed them Lamington Balls, as they have a very appealing lamington-like favour!
(single batch makes aprox 25 - just double all quantities for a larger batch)
1 packet (250g) Milk arrowroot biscuits
1/3 cup (40g) Cocoa powder
1/2 cup (45g) desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling the balls in)
1 tin (395g) of condensed milk
Crush the biscuits and place into a mixing bowl
Add Cocoa powder and coconut, stirring together to combine well
Add the condensed milk and mix all ingredients well
Take a small amount of the mixture and roll into a ball, then roll in coconut to coat
Continue with the rest of the mixture and then place all the balls on a plate/plastic container and chill for 30 mins.
Will keep in the fridge for upto a week (if they last that long!) xE
