The best part? Coconut rolls are a no-oven recipe, so they're prepared very quick and virtually anyone can make them without hassle. With a few ingredients, even your kids can have them done without wasting time. Adding chocolate flavor or cocoa crowns it all, as it gives it a brownish outer layer that makes your rolls appear even yummier. But then, you can choose to go for plain coconut rolls or those with cocoa. Both work fine as it's up to you to choose. Before you start making them with cocoa, here are the ingredients you need to have. Of course, you want your coconut rolls to make anyone salivate in a quest for more.
Ingredients for Making Coconut Rolls (The Biscuits)
Inner Layer (Filling)
- Desiccated coconut – Half or ¾ cup
- Butter – 2 tablespoons
- Icing sugar – 2 tablespoons
- Vanilla essence – A few drops
- Cocoa powder – 2 tablespoons
- Icing Sugar – 2 tablespoons or to your taste
- Marie Biscuits – 1 packet
- Butter – 1 tablespoon
- Milk – ¼ cup
- Take your time to grind the biscuits into a fine powder and mix the powder well.
- To the well-grinded biscuit, add sugar, cocoa, and milk. Note that you shouldn’t add milk all at once. Take it bit by bit until the mixture forms a dough.
- Set the smooth dough aside.
- The next step is to make the coconut mixture, which is the core thing for every coconut roll. Put desiccated coconut in a bowl and add vanilla essence, milk, sugar, melted butter, and ensure you mix all properly.
- Get an aluminum foil or butter paper and open it. Then add the biscuit dough on it and spread evenly.
- Spread coconut mixture on the biscuit dough and roll it evenly with a rolling pin or with your bare hands.
- Turn it into a long bar and ensure you cover it well with the foil
- Keep the rolls in a fridge for about 5 hours to freeze properly.
- Take them out and remove the butter paper or aluminum foil and cut into sizeable slices.
It’s time to eat the yummy dessert!
