Hints & Tips
If you do not have a temperature probe, you can still try and follow the instructions
without actually testing temperature. The end result will just last in thicker chocolate
coated balls without such a shine to them.
Prepare the crunchy balls a day ahead of time to allow them to dry out fully, giving
them more crunch.
Use good quality Chocolate to ensure the recipe gives you the best possible end
result. Quality chocolate will have a matte gloss finish and smooth texture that is free
of discoloration. Dark chocolate should make a snapping sound when broken without
crumbling while white and milk chocolate should bend rather than snap.
