Pour biscuits into a zip lock bag and crust with a rolling pin until they are small chunks. (Dont worry if some of them get crushed into fine crumbs). Put crushed biscuits into a mixing bowl with the cocoa powder and about 1/3 to 1/2 the packet of the coconut. Mix dry ingredients. Pour extra coconut into a separate bowl.
Pour whole tin of condensed milk over the biscuit mixture and mix with a metal spoon until mix is combined. Take dessert spoonfuls and roll into balls with your hands and then roll in remaining coconut. Place on a tray and put in fridge until the set firm.
These are so yummy. I made them for little treats and made them into little christmas puddings with white chocolate melted on the top. I cut spearment leaves and raspberry lollies and added them to the top to make them look like a piece of holly and a red berry. They were very popular. - 01 Jan 2011
