READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
YIELD: 40 balls




  • Combine milk, butter, heavy cream, and corn syrup in medium sauce pan and bring to gentle boil over medium heat.
  • As soon as mixture begins to bubble, add chocolate and coca powder, whisking vigorously.
  • Reduce heat to low, cook for 8-10 minutes until a dense, fudgy batter, whisking continuously. It will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and develop little bubble holes.
  • Slide out mixture into a bowl and let cool to room temperature; then cover bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Scoop mixture by the teaspoonful, shape into balls and roll in your choice of sprinkles, nuts or coconut. (optional! place in small cupcake holders for more sophisticated look)
  • Store in airtight plastic container for up to 2 days at room temperature, or up to one month in the refrigerator.
