Fudge in a truffle-like candy makes these Fudge Balls P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N! There's nothing better! Try it and see for yourself!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pounds milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups ground walnuts, toasted
What To Do:
  1. Melt chocolate in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Meanwhile, beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric beater until soft peaks form. Gradually add melted chocolate, and beat 15 minutes. Cover and chill 8 hours.
  2. Working quickly, shape half of chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls. Place balls on a wax paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. (Keep remaining half of chocolate mixture chilled.) Repeat procedure with remaining chocolate mixture. Roll balls in walnuts until completely coated. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.

The dough for this truffle-like candy needs to chill 8 hours, but the wait's worth it. Chilling the chocolate helps to make 'em velvety smooth, creamy, and yummy!

Do you need to let the chocolate cool down first?

I want to try this recipe but I have a couple of questions, before I do - can these Fudge balls be made into Rum Balls? If so how much rum would I add /or would I need to increase the other ingredients? My mom said she had rum balls made from a similar recipe back in the 1950-60's, but hasn't been able to find the recipe, again. However, since then every recipe she has seen, adds vanilla wafers or some other cookie and that's not what she wants. Can you help?

The dough was extremely difficult to get out of the bowl. I think they're good eating chocolate air, so creamy

These are scrumptious little slices of heaven. You can even add some flavored extract for another layer of yummy. I make these often myself and they don't last to long.
