Another Hungarian classic. 🙂 Coconut balls they are called, but the coconut you will only find on the outside. Funny name. This no-bake dessert was always one of utmost favourites. It’s so easy to make and a real crowd-pleaser. We used this internet recipe as a base but we didn’t follow the actual portions of ingredients, but measured them by eye mostly. We also added some cherries to spice things up a bit.
It’s one of those recipes that are difficult to actually write down as it’s so easy to make this dessert that nobody ever bothers with it. :p
Ingredients / 12 portions
- 500 g granulated biscuits (like Petit Beurre)
- 100 g cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons white sugar
- 20 ml rum
- 400g apricot jam (or less, as much as the biscuits absorb)
- 100 g shredded coconut
- a small jar pitted cherries
- Granulate the biscuits and mix in the cocoa and the sugar.
- Add the rum and as much apricot jam as it absorbs to make a soft “batter”.
- With slightly wet hands make tiny balls approx. 3-4 cm diameter large, place a cherry in the middle, make sure it’s well covered with the cocoa mixture and cover it with the shredded coconut. It’s even better if you can cool it down a little in the fridge before consuming.
