Chocolate cherry balls..... Just for Ethan

i was having lunch a couple of weeks ago with one of the nice guys from work..and were discussing treats..and Ethan mentioned how he doesnt like rum balls..in particular the sultanas in them.. so i came up with these treats for him...


Chocolate cherry balls.....
ingredients...
2 x 200gm Plain biscuits.. {malt or nice etc} crushed.
1 x 200 gm Glace Cherries
1 tin condensed milk
2tb spoon of cocoa powder
½ cup choc bits
¼ cup Kaluha
500 gm block Cooking chocolate

In a bowl mix the crushed biscuits, condensed milk, cocoa, choc bits and Kaluha. {mix should be slighly sticky} . Wet the palm of your hands and press about a palm worth of mixture onto your hand and add the cherry to the middle.. fold the mixture up over the cherry and roll into a ball...
do this for all the cherries.
Let the balls rest in the freezer for appox ½ hour {or just when you get a chance to get back to them.}
Melt the block of chocolate on the stove according to its directions on the packet.. now for the slightly tricky bit.. using a couple of spoons coat each ball one at a time in the chocolate. You'll have to work quickly before the chocolate starts to set..
let the balls sit in the fridge until the outside is hard...
and then....
Try NOT to eat them all at once..

Happy Christmas.....
