Chocolate Balls - No Bake Recipe

This is a delicious recipe. It requires no baking, its simple and versatile.  You could pretty much shape it in any way you like and decorate it for any party theme.

chocolate balls

200g ground dark chocolate
200g ground almonds
2 bags of Vanillin sugar
2 egg whites
3tsp of rum ( I used 1 tsp of vanilla extract instead)
Chocolate vermicelli
Roasted hazelnuts (optional)

In a small bowl combine ground almonds and ground chocolate.  Mix well together.  Add the Vanillin sugar.

chocolate balls preparation

Separate the egg whites and whisk a little with a fork.  Add rum or vanilla extract to the eggs and add to the chocolate mix.  Mix well with your hand until completely combined.  Place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Remove from the fridge and roll into small balls about 1.5 cm or about 0.5inch in diameter. Roll them into the vermicelli and place in mini muffin paper cups.

If you like you can shape the balls around the roasted hazelnuts.  After roasting remove the skin and place in the middle, then roll into the vermicelli or any other decorative sprinkles you like.  I think I actually prefer this with a nutty surprise in the middle.  Come to think of it, you could pretty much put anything you like in the middle.

  1. These look lovely. I wonder if this is what we used to call rum truffles. I made up a recipe using old cake to achieve something similar to the cakes I remember from my childhood. I like the nut idea.

  2. How many does this recipe feed?

    1. You should be able to make at least 30 balls. I made 40

  3. Is there a measurement for the vanilla sugar? I make my own and don't know how much is in one bag.
