These are a rather dangerous treat to have in the house!
I get the boys involved in rolling the balls out as they are often for their social events or cricket club morning teas.
Makes 28 balls.
395g tin condensed milk
100g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa
Zest of one orange
150g desiccated coconut
In a large heavy based pan, heat the butter and condensed milk over a low heat, slowly bring it up to the simmer and simmer, stirring all the time, until it thickens, around ten minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and beat in the chocolate.
Once the chocolate has melted add the orange zest and 100g of coconut. Stir well and set aside to cool.
Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, pour the remaining coconut onto a plate and roll walnut sized balls of the chocolate mixture in the coconut. Repeat until all of the chocolate mixture has been used up.
Keep in a cool place.
