Coconut Balls.

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

Assembling

  1. Granulate the biscuits and mix in the cocoa and the sugar.
  2. Add the rum and as much apricot jam as it absorbs to make a soft “batter”.
  3. 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.
