Coconut is widely used in many Indian mithai and I have added this to give a slight authentic, Indian taste. My brother for one is not a great fan of the traditional Indian mithai and that’s why I thought it would be nice to create something which I know will go down a treat. Chocolate is a great choice for all and I have incorporated that flavour in this sweet dish.
Makes 25 Bite Size Balls or 50 Miniature Balls
200g Condensed Milk
2oz Drinking Chocolate
2oz Desiccated Coconut- Reserve some for rolling the balls into
7 Digestive Biscuits- Grinded but not too powdery
Small Handful Raisins
Small Handful Crushed Walnuts
Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
Meanwhile heat the butter in a pan along with the condensed milk and just warm through until the butter has melted. Immediately take off the heat and pour into the dry ingredients. Give this a thorough stir making sure all the ingredients are mixed properly.
Take a small teaspoon of the mixture and put it onto your palms and roll into a ball. Make sure the balls are all small and equal in size; roll each ball onto a small dish with the coconut and make sure the ball is covered all over with the coconut.
Put all the balls onto a tray and leave in the fridge until they have cooled.
