3 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened baking chocolate
1 (3 ounce) package
instant coffee granules
chocolate sprinkles (jimmies)
I found that by putting the mixture in the fridge and leaving it overnight - it made it a lot easier to roll........Also when I ran out of Chocolate sprinkles I rolled the remaining dough in Cocoa powder.
not the recipe I was looking for
I found these while looking for a gluten-free version of my Xmas favorite rum balls. They are super rich, but not too sweet; much more like fudge than like the traditional Nilla-wafer-based rum ball cookies.
After reading LARABER's review, I decided to forgo the jimmies and used General Foods International Suisse Mocha flavored coffee powder to roll them in instead, which worked really well. I think the sugar in it helps compensate for the bitterness of the chocolate.
I also had the same experience where the mixture was much too runny to make into balls. I added about half a cup more powdered sugar (maybe even more), which seemed to help. Also, it wasn't cold enough after an hour in the fridge, but three hours was plenty.
Finally, I used amaretto for half the batch and rum for the other half. Both tasted awesome. :-)
These were very hard to roll, even after an hour in the fridge. The dough was overly soft and not easy to work with. Also ran out of jimmies, I was not thinking about how many I'd need, but maybe the recipe should say "several bottles of chocolate jimmie sprinkles". I rolled the rest in finely chopped walnuts, and that was OK.
My girlfriend picked these cookies for an exchange we had. My first thought was these will add to a nice variety on my tray. Well..I think I ate them all! These are so aewsome and addictive! Work fast after you chill for an hour and they go great!
Great recipe as I am cutting back on gluten. I used semi sweet choc as I didn't have unsweetened and they turned out great. I added a pinch of chili pepper and substituted pecans for almonds. I used a gourmet chocolate sprinkles that is less sugary and more refined looking and every one thought I bought them at an upscale bake shop.
These are awesome!!!
I used crushed Chips Ahoy for the topping... Very, Very good.
