Chocolate Cake Balls

A long time buddy of mine lately gave birth to another boy and invited me to his first month celebration. I am very happy for her. It's been 25 years since we knew each other. Even though we don't meet often, nor chat often, we will still include each other in some of our celebrations.


Since she invited me to her son's first month celebration, I decided to make some simple, yet delectable desserts for her. I was glad she liked my Chocolate Cake Balls.
Recipe for Chocolate Cake Balls
Makes 66 balls (about 1 inch size)


Ingredients:
400g Chocolate cake sponge, broken to pieces
100g Semi-sweet chocolate, melted
3 tbsp Whole milk (approximate)


Method:

  1. In a mixer with K-beater, mix the chocolate sponge well. Make sure they are broken into pieces.
  2. Add the whole milk to blend. They should somehow come together, but not completely.
  3. Add in the melted chocolate.
  4. Mix thoroughly until they come together. If they don't, add more milk or chocolate if needed.
  5. Then divide out the chocolate mixture, and roll them into balls.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to decorate.
To decorate:

Ingredients:
80g Semi-sweet chocolate, melted
Dragees to decorate

Method:
  1. Pipe some chocolate on the chocolate balls.
  2. Decorate with coloured dragess as desired.
  3. Serve it cool!

That's right, Shirley! They are rum balls in disguise. Just without the Rum in case children cannot consume. :p
