This were OK but they where lacking something. There needs to be a "surprise' in the middle, I think (perhaps a small ball of raspberry sorbet inside the bigger chocolate ball). Having said that, they are incredibly easy to make.

Outstanding recipe. I made these a week before I was to serve them and everyone loved them. I forgot to buy the raspberries so I used strawberry sauce Strawberry Dessert Sauce instead. This is a great dessert that can be made ahead of time. There are a number of steps in making the dessert, but each one is very simple. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks for a crowd pleasing recipe.
