Festive Chocolate Balls

Easy, no bake, delicious Festive Chocolate Balls

These Festive Chocolate Balls are basically the same as my Chocolate Snow Balls, but with the addition of a glace cherry to the center and decorated a little different.


Cherries and the Festive season goes hand in hand in my book. Not even to speak of all-things-glittery and sparkly !

I do not think this is the season to go all out on a diet - anyway, most definitely not for me. These are the 6 weeks a year where I eat what I want {and more often than not - over eat !}. The Festive season starts December and lasts into the middle of January, that is, in South-Africa, but I actually think it is the same in most countries.

One thing I do miss, however, is to have the kids around all the time. But as they say, life goes on, the kids grow up and inevitable go their own way {small pre-empty nest syndrome??}

Anyhow, it is still nice to treat them with something which I can whip up just as quickly and suddenly, as they appear and actually spend some time at home. These are great to add to a sweet platter as well, whether it be for Christmas, New Year or any other occasion.

FESTIVE CHOCOLATE BALLS


INGREDIENTS:

400g Chocolate Sandwich Cookies {Oreos/Romany Creams}
250g Cream Cheese, softened
40 Glace Cherries
400g Milk Chocolate {good quality}
100g White chocolate {good quality}
Gold Sugar, to decorate

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Process the Cookies until fine in a food processor - add the Cream Cheese and process until a ball forms.
2.) Form small balls - flatten slightly and place a Cherry - roll the "dough" into a ball again - place on a wax paper lined baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
3.) Melt the Milk Chocolate {microwave or stove top} - dip each ball into the melted Chocolate - place back on the wax paper and return to the freezer for 10 minutes.
4.) Melt the White Chocolate - drizzle a small amount over each cookie ball - sprinkle with the Gold Sugar and chill until fully set.
