If you are on TikTok I’m sure you’ve seen those milk balls all over your FYP!  And you know how I love TikTok recipes, so far I’ve made cloud bread, whipped coffee, and an olive oil cake.

ARE TIKTOK MILK BALLS THE SAME AS MALT MILK BALLS

When you run a search for “milk balls” usually what you get are the malted milk balls.  The milk balls from TikTok are not the same at all.  The recipe calls for completely different ingredients.

Malted milk balls are basically Whoppers, crunchy on the inside and covered in chocolate on the outside.  The TikTok ones look more like mochi.

INGREDIENTS

ingredients

You only need a few ingredients to make this:

  • Milk
  • Cornstarch
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract (Optional)
  • Cocoa Powder (Optional)

HOW TO MAKE TIKTOK MILK BALLS

This is probably the easiest recipe I have ever made.  You basically mix the milk, cornstarch and sugar (and vanilla extract if using) together and cook it over a low flame, stirring constantly.  Once most of the liquid evaporates you will form a dough.

Take your dough and knead it for a bit by hand.  Then rip off small pieces and roll into balls.  Dust with cocoa powder to finish.

WHAT DO THEY TASTE LIKE

So this is another one of those cornstarch-based recipes like cloud bread.  And while it looks pretty it does not taste great!

I added the vanilla to see if it would improve the flavor, and it didn’t.

Also, I thought it would have the texture of mochi, but I was wrong.  The texture, as one person on TikTok, described it, is like a chalky glue! 

And I can’t help but agree!

So if you want to make this, make it for the Gram but I don’t recommend actually eating it.

I might try it again  however with mochiko which could actually yield mochi milk balls and be delicious.
