We really like cheesecake so have used a full block of cream cheese but if you want the ball more of a crunchy biscuit  texture you can use 1/2 – 3/4 of a block.

I placed the balls on a silicone mat on a baking tray, the choc coated balls are really easy to peel off the silicone.

I gave my eldest daughter, who helped me make these balls, a Chocolate Dipping Set for her birthday this year. It came in really handy to dip the balls mess free!
