Every kitchen buff has a first memory of his attempt at cooking or baking and the successes and failures from which they learned and developed. And like everyone else, I have memories like that. So today, with great excitement, I want to share with you the first recipe I ever made when I was probably 8-10 y.o It is from a cookbook for kids that was very popular in Israel in the 80s. The name in Hebrew is Kadurei shokolad (chocolate balls) כדורי שוקולד and I have probably made this recipe hundreds of times.
How to Make These Chocolate Biscuit Balls?
- Start by breaking the biscuits into small pieces until they resemble breadcrumbs.
- Place the crumbs into a large bowl.
- Melt the butter together with milk or cream, sugar, and cocoa powder.
- Mix the crumbs with the wet ingredients.
- Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Then, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
- With wet hands, roll balls the size of ping-pong (more or less). Then, roll each ball in shredded coconut or sprinkles.
How To Store Chocolate Biscuit Balls
Keep the chocolate balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can keep it frozen if you prefer to store it longer.
