Colored chocolate balls
Feel like taking a trip down memory lane? A perfect and quick recipe for chocolate balls made from biscuits, like we used to make when we were little. Some things never change, no matter how much time passes.
Let your kids mix and make the balls. I know it’ll be messy but it keeps them busy and they love to eat them when they’re done, plus, mom gets a bit of down time. And if I’m lucky, some of these might actually make it to the fridge so I have something to snack on a bit later.
You know what the most annoying thing about chocolate balls is? I explain at the end of the post.
Makes 30 balls
100 grams softened butter
1 heaped Tbsp chocolate drink mix powder (like Nesquik)
1 Tbsp chocolate spread
1 Tbsp cocoa
120 ml milk (1/2 cup)
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp liqueur
200 grams biscuits
1. Place the biscuits in a food processor, crush them into tiny pieces by pulsing.
2. Transfer the biscuits to a bowl and add the other ingredients and mix until well combined.
3. Prepare small bowls with different toppings, form balls and roll in your topping of choice.
4. Place in small muffin cups and refrigerate.

Good to know…
Don’t you hate it when the sprinkles don’t stick to the chocolate balls? Coconut sticks no problem but sprinkles don’t, so what can you do? Once the balls are ready, wet your hands and roll the balls between your wet hands before you roll them in the sprinkles. Simple, right?
It’s best not to prepare these with sprinkles a few days before you eat them since the food coloring bleeds. You can coat with the other toppings though and even freeze
them. For dairy-free, use butter-flavored margarine instead of the butter and non-dairy cream or soy milk instead of the milk.
