Chocolate Nut Balls

Recipe by _Pixie_
READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
YIELD: 24 balls


  • 12
    ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (REAL chocolate please)
  • 1
    cup chopped nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts, pick your favourite)
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla
  • 18
    teaspoon salt
  • chocolate sprinkles or finely grated chocolate, if preferred


  • In the top of a double boiler over hot (but not boiling) water, melt the chocolate chips.
  • Stir in nuts, condensed milk, vanilla and salt.
  • Mix well.
  • Cool the mixture until until you can work with it comfortably. If it is too soft, chill it in the refrigerator until it is workable. The temperature in your kitchen and the type of nut (and fineness of chopping) used can influence how much it needs to chill before being workable.
  • Butter hands and roll mixture into 1 inch balls.
  • Roll the balls in the chocolate sprinkles (or grated chocolate) and refrigerate.
