CHOCOLATE BALLS THAT CHILDREN LOVE
Everyone – children and adults alike – love chocolate balls. You can make them simply with cookies and chocolate, or coat them with colorful sprinkles, coconut flakes or cocoa powder.
Makes 20 balls.
300 gr. Petit-Beurre cookies or leftover cake ¾ cup sugar
6 Tbsp. cocoa powder
150 gr. butter, softened
100 gr. chocolate, broken up into pieces 1 Tbsp. chocolate liqueur
¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
¹⁄3 cup milk, at room temperature 20 cupcake holders
Chocolate shavings, colored sprinkles or candles, coconut flakes.
Place the cookies or Petits-Beurre in the bowl of a food processor and blend. Pour the crumbs into a bowl. Add the sugar and cocoa powder and mix. Pour in the softened butter and mix well.
Pour the milk into a small pot and heat over a low flame. Add the chocolate and mix well. Add the crumb mixture and mix. Add the chopped nuts and mix again.
Wet your hands and then form balls from the mixture. If the mixture is too moist and the balls don’t form well, place the bowl in the fridge for an hour before making the balls.
Place toppings on a plate and roll balls in the toppings. Place balls inside cupcake holders and keep in fridge until serving.
