Christmas Candy Cane Choc Balls

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I made these Christmas Candy Cane Choc Balls for a BBQ lunch we went to on the weekend, they were a hit with the young and the old.  

Place 310g chocolate (milk or dark your preference) and 7 tablespoons of cream in a bowl, place over a saucepan of boiling water.  Stir constantly with a whisk until chocolate has melted.   

 Set aside and cool

Pour into a baking dish and place in fridge until set.  Scrap a teaspoon along the surface of the chocolate and roll into bit sized balls. Refrigerate again if they are still soft.

Crush candy canes.  I placed mine in a ziplock bag and used a meat mallet to crush them. 

Place candy in a bowl

Roll choc balls into candy, keep refrigerated & serve same day

I am thinking that breaking those candy canes would be a good stress relief over the holiday season too! Lovely idea – I will be making these xx

Do you think these would freeze ok?

Great question, I’m not certain how the candy cane would go in the freezer and then defrosting as it can get quite sticky.

I might freeze without the candy cane to hopefully get around that. Sounds yummy.
