Every kitchen buff has a first memory of his attempt at cooking or baking and the successes and failures from which they learned and developed. And like everyone else, I have memories like that. So today, with great excitement, I want to share with you the first recipe I ever made when I was probably 8-10 y.o It is from a cookbook for kids that was very popular in Israel in the 80s. The name in Hebrew is Kadurei Shokolad (chocolate balls) כדורי שוקולד, and I have probably made this recipe hundreds of times.

If you like this recipe, give a try to my Israeli Chocolate Balls a fun (and delicious) variation.

How to Make These Chocolate Biscuit Balls?

  • Start by breaking the biscuits into small pieces until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Place the crumbs into a large bowl.
  • Melt the butter together with milk or cream, sugar, and cocoa powder.
  • Mix the crumbs with the wet ingredients.
  • Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Then, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
  • With wet hands, roll balls the size of ping-pong (more or less). Then, roll each ball in shredded coconut or sprinkles.
