Decadent Brownie Balls

So I was tinkering. I tend to tinker. I can never leave anything alone. I made some brownies. I used a small circle cookie cutter to cut them so that they would all be the same size and so they would look a little prettier, more festive if you will, than a regular square. And then I rolled one. I've made brownie balls before and they are quite good. But I wanted to do something to this little ball. And I wondered what it would be like dipped in chocolate. Would it be good? Decadent? Too rich? So I turned all the little circles into balls. And then I made a ganche of sorts. I say of sorts because most recipes call for cream and I had none. I had nothing but 1% milk.

I made a double boiler by placing a metal mixing bowl on top of a pot of boiling water. When the bowl got hot and the water started to steam I turned the heat down and added my bad of chocolate chips. I then added some milk, slowly, a little at a time. I would guess a total of 1/4 of a cup and let it temper (warm) on the melted chocolate and beat it in so the chocolate formed something resembling a rich chocolate putting.

Using a skewer I placed the brownie ball in the chocolate and made sure it was well covered and then placed the chocolate covered brownie on to a cutting board that was covered with wax paper. When there was no more room I set the balls in the fridge to chill. (Freezer is good too, but mine was stuffed!) When the chocolate set and then drizzled some white chocolate over the top to cover up the imperfections and create fun patters.

I melted the white chocolate the same way, though I did not add milk and turn it into a ganache. When the white chocolate melted I poured it into a ziplock bag and made the smallest of incisions on the corner so that I could squeeze the chocolate through. When the chocolate cooled I simply placed the bag in the microwave to soften the chocolate.

I made my simple designs and returned the balls into the fridge to harden again.

These brownie balls are not only pretty, fun and festive but they are delicious, completely decadent!


* Brownies already made and rolled into balls. I think in this case a boxed mix is more suitable than a brownie made from scratch. I tried both and like the brownie made from the mix better in this recipe.

* 1/4 cup of milk

* 1 bag of chocolate chips

* 1 bag of white chocolate chips

* Ziplock bag

* Wax paper or other nonstick surface

Reread for directions!

I would be popping (I first wrote pooping by accident!) these left and right!

I attempted cake balls...the first try from a box mix was a failure. If I don't like them then we know they are really bad! I am making coconut cupcakes today for a friend's birthday and will try with the homemade ingredients and dip in white chocolate.

You don't call them balls, you call them truffles. Well, I don't because it makes me sound like I can cook!

Yummy! Sounds a lot like my Oreo Truffles.

Jess, what kind of chocolate chips? Brand please? Your melted chocolate looks so dark compared to every time I have melted chocolate chips. Do you have a tip for me? Absolutely beautiful!
