Milo Weet-Bix balls

These simple Milo and Weet-Bix balls are the perfect treat to include in your little one’s lunchbox. They’re sweet and chocolatey and can be rolled in either coconut or 100’s and 1000’s for a bright, colourful snack.

They take around 10 minutes to make and you’ll be left with around 20 snack sized balls perfect for lunchboxes or after kindergarten, daycare or school snacks.

It’s a great recipe to get your kids involved with. Mixing the ingredients, rolling the balls, and coating in 100’s and 1000’s is an easy, fun task for kids.

I like to let mine set in the fridge for a good half hour before eating, but they are fine to eat as soon as you’ve rolled them. These keep well in the fridge for 4 days, or in the freezer for 3 months.

Prep Time 10 mins Rest Time 10 mins Total Time 20 mins Difficulty: Beginner Servings: 20



  1. Blitz your Weet-Bix

    Add your Weet-Bix to a food processor and blend on high for 30 seconds. It should create a powder like crumb.

  2. Create mix

    Add crumbs to a bowl and mix in Milo, 1 cup desiccated coconut (reserve one cup for coating), and one can of sweetened condensed milk.

  3. Roll into balls

    Roll into balls, then roll into either desiccated coconut or sprinkles. I like to do a mix of both.

  4. Refrigerate for best results

    Refrigerate for half an hour before enjoying (you can also enjoy them freshly rolled). You can keep the balls in the fridge for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for 3 months.
