This chocolate biscuit balls recipe is the bomb! I got it from Steve, a colleague whose helper made it for a party and after popping in my first few as soon as he set the box down, I obviously asked for the recipe. Learn how to make these amazing chocolate biscuit balls that need no baking and detailed below step by step.
These chocolate biscuit balls are derived from the Israeli treat called Kadorei Shokolad, usually made for kids during birthday parties and such. The recipe is simple – you just blitz biscuits and mix it up with a few things – and interestingly, this is a chocolate dessert using no condensed milk, unlike my very popular chocolate biscuit brownie recipe where condensed milk is what brings the party together.
The mixture can be coated in confetti like I’ve done, crushed nuts, desiccated coconut, chocolate rice, or pretty much anything else that takes your fancy. Kids and adults alike would surely like it.
A few things before we get started:
- You can use Marie biscuits, plain digestive biscuits, or graham crackers for this recipe
- Brown sugar is recommended but you can use regular white sugar in a pinch
- The vanilla extract is not optional
- The cocoa powder can be substituted with healthier cacao powder if you’d like. Both should be unsweetened though
- Adjust the amount of milk to get the right consistency. It would depend on the type of biscuits you are using for this dessert. I’d say start with 5 tablespoons and see how you go
- Butter can be replaced with margarine
If you love biscuit-based desserts, then I’d recommend:

- These chocolate biscuit balls keep well in the refrigerate up to three days. If making a large batch for a party, you can make them a day ahead
- I’d suggest adding lesser milk and then adding more if the mixture is too thick. I found that this quantity of milk made my biscuit mixture a bit too soft to shape and had to add a couple of biscuits, crushed
- Adjust sugar to your taste, adding a bit less is totally find too, especially if you are coating the chocolate biscuit balls in sweet stuff like sprinkles or chocolate rice sprinkles.
