After making the Pancakes and the Pizza Bites for the Blogging Marathon #98 theme “Kid’s Delight – Bites”, I was totally blank. It isn’t that my mind wasn’t without any ideas but somehow the ideas weren’t being converted into actions. It was really frustrating me to the core. That is when I was reminded of the pack of arrowroot biscuits umma had left and gone for the girls to eat. I had left it in the cupboard since it has all powdered up and eating it without messing up the house is out of question. So there were born these no-cook, super easy Chocolate Biscuit Balls.
Sometimes I really wonder why I need to concentrate on posting such easy to make recipes, especially those that are no-cook. We are always looking at ideas which won’t take much time or effort on our part, but will still ensure us meals are ready to be given. I guess I have to put my head into making such meals more frequently… 🙂
I have adapted the recipe from here. The ease of this recipe is that all ingredients are readily available in your pantry. You don’t need to use anything from outside. Plus it is so easily adaptable! I have kept the recipe very simple but you can add anything into it for extra crunch and munch. I literally saw the snack flying out of the box,as the HD and girls were watching TV. Somehow I must shed off my laziness and start rotating around such easy treats… 😉
I have used drinking chocolate in this, as I don’t like the taste of raw cocoa powder. That explains why the color of the balls aren’t that dark. You can add some chopped nuts or chocolate chips to add an interesting dimension to this snack. It makes a very good dessert for a kid party. Just giving some ideas… 😉 Off to the recipe…
- 150 gm biscuits (I used arrowroot biscuits)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 tbsp cooking chocolate powder
- 20 gm butter, melted
- Milk, as needed
- Dessicated coconut to roll (optional)
- Powder the biscuits in a blender.
- Empty into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Add milk little by little till you have a dough like consistency.
- Roll into 8 or 9 equal sized balls and roll into the coconut if using.
- Keep it refrigerated just for the ball to settle. Enjoy!
