Triple Chocolate Balls

Triple Chocolate Party Balls

Party Balls

INGREDIENTS:

Makes 20

  • 3 cups crushed shortbread cookies
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips or chocolate bar, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup liqueur of choice (or rum)
  • chocolate candy coating (or almond bark) for dipping

 METHOD:

  1. Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix well until a “dough” forms.
  2. Freeze dough for 30 minutes, or until hard enough to form balls. Break off small pieces and roll between your palms until you have lots of small truffle-sized balls. Re-freeze until ready to dip.
  3. Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler. Dip each frozen ball in the chocolate. Set to dry on wax paper.
NOTES
Liqueur suggestions: Bailey’s, Kahlua, rum, or bourbon. Mix it up by using white or dark chocolate! or dark chocolate chips – yum!
