Chocolate Coconut Balls Gluten Free

Chocolate Coconut Balls Gluten Free

In my family these Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Balls are known as “Nothings” but you might know these bite size treats as Rum Balls or Golf Balls? They only require 4 ingredients and don’t require any baking which always makes for a great recipe!

They are often made when my family get together to celebrate a Birthday or Christmas. The problem is they always seem to disappear from the table. So these days we make a separate batch for my brother so everyone else gets to enjoy them too!

With thanks to my wonderful Nan and sister for the original recipe I modified to be Gluten Free.

Happy Eating!

Chocolate Coconut Balls Gluten Free
Servings: 20 balls
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 375 g Gluten free plain sweet biscuits (I use a combination of half Arnott's GF rice cookies and Leda GF Arrowroot Biscuits)
  • 395 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • Extra coconut for rolling
  1. Process biscuits in food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. If you don't have a food processor use a rolling pin to crush biscuits.
  2. Combine biscuits, ½ cup coconut, condensed milk and cocoa in a medium size bowl.
  3. Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture (or desired amount into a ball roll) in remaining coconut to coat. Repeat with remaining mixture.

  4. Cover chocolate coconut balls with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Then serve.
