Tim Tam Malteser Balls

 

These delicious balls of chocolate-y goodness have become a regular treat in our family to use as a gift. Whenever my kids want to give a little gift to a friend or teacher, I am more than happy to help out (although these are so simple that they usually make it themselves). No matter the occasion, I love it when they want to show appreciation to others. A small gesture of thanks often goes a long way.

I found the recipe here and loved the fact that there are only 4 ingredients, and a very simple method. The combination of Tim Tams and Maltesers is just genius, and there is something special about the texture of them crushed together. I recently made a batch with flavoured Tim Tams (salted caramel with vanilla, and choc mint) and they were amazing!

So, how simple is it? Just crush 1 packet of Tim Tams and 1 cup of Maltesers (sadly, there will be some left over that you will just have to snack on as you keep going). I use my thermomix to crush them, but you can also just put them all in a large ziplock bag and break up with a rolling pin or similar (a great stress relief activity!). Next add half a can of condensed milk and 1 cup of coconut and mix it all together.

Take about a spoonful of mixture, roll it into a ball and place into a small bowl of extra coconut. This part gets a bit messy, so I usually rinse my hands a couple of times throughout the process. Slightly wet hands actually make rolling the balls a little easier though. I would recommend rolling about 8 balls at a time and then coating them with the coconut in a batch.

Pop them in the fridge to firm up and you are done!

NB – Depending on the size of the balls, one batch makes around 20. I usually make a double batch to use up one whole tin of condensed milk – if this is too many for whatever the occasion, I can guarantee the left-overs won’t last.
