These no-bake chocolate coconut balls are great if you have little time but a big craving for something sweet. 

Other countries have their coconut ball recipe, this is how we do it in Hungary:

Recipe by: Name

Cuisine: Hungary

Serves: 6

Prep time:   30 mins

Cooling time: 2 hrs


500 grams of plain biscuits (I used Digestives). 

100 gram of unsalted butter. 

100 grams of icing sugar.

1 pack of vanilla sugar

2 table spoon of cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon of rumaroma (its a rum essence) I used normal dark Rum about 4 tablespoons. 

200 ml of Milk

100 grams desiccated coconut flake to over the balls with at the end. 


  1. Crush the digestives into crumbs (I use a food processor to get it perfectly crumbed). 
  2. Mix the butter (room temperature) with the biscuit. 
  3. -Mix the icing sugar, vanilla sugar, cocoa powder, rum aroma (or rum) and milk with the mix and mix them all together. 
  4. Roll the mix into small balls with a wet hand, it helps with rolling them and then toss them in the coconut flake to cover them.
