Notes

Tips

  • For this recipe to be gluten-free check the puffed rice you are using, standard rice bubbles will work in the recipe however they are not gluten-free
  • If you are not big on the texture of desiccated coconut then don't roll them in extra
  • Can be stored in the refrigerator for 7 days or frozen for up to 3 months
  • best served chilled
  • If you initially refrigerate the mix for too long and they are hard to roll into balls, give the colled mix a quick blitz and it will fix the problem
  • The coconut milk/cream can be substituted for milk or water if you don't have coconut milk on hand
