Tired of having an urge for Schweddy Balls but can't find an open Season's Eatings to buy them? Well I've cracked the one of the Schweddy family's secret recipes and I'll present my “Schweddy” Balls to you now. Remember no one can resist Schweddy Balls!
Real Schweddy Balls :
Are Bigger then Expected
To enjoy your own Schweddy Balls you will need:
2 lbs Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Pound Plus bars – These are high quality Belgium Chocolate
1 lb 72% Cacao Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Pound Plus Bars
1 large jar of Nuttella Hazelnut Spread
Filling Candy -All kind of choices here. I used bite sized snicker bars, Recees Peanut butter cups, and Ferro Roche candies. Peanut M&Ms, caramels, nuts, dried fruits, mixed chocolates, etc. will all work great. This is where you have a lot of room to play with your balls.
Basically we will make a thick chocolate shell and fill it with a chocolate hazelnut filling embedded with other candies.
Large Microwavable Bowl
Metal Spatula/ Pancake turner
Sterilite Christmas Bulb Storage tray to use as a mold
Step 1: Melting the Chocolate
Break up 1 bar of the Dark chocolate and place in bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir Chocolate. Chocolate won't be melted yet but you need to set up a pattern. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir Chocolate. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir Chocolate. Chocolate should be starting to melt now. Keep microwaving and stirring until chocolate is melted and smooth. When it really starts melting, reduce microwave times to 10 seconds. Chocolate should be thick but pourable off a spoon.
