Ingredients
  

  • 400 gm milk chocolate
  • 200 gm dark chocolate
  • 200 ml fresh cream
  • 50 gm coconut desiccated

Instructions
 

  • Grate 200 gm milk chocolate and 200 gm dark chocolate.
  • Bring cream to boil and take it off the stove.
  • Add both the grated chocolates and whisk gently till mixed.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour, stirring every 15 min.
  • Take out the mix and make small balls by rolling it in your hands. You can moisten your hand with a very little water if the mixture sticks but remember very wet hands can make the balls too soft.
  • Melt the rest of the milk chocolate using a double boiler or in microwave. I melted it in the microwave. In case you do the same, remember never to melt chocolate on high, always on medium around 450W. Stir it at 1 min intervals till it's melted and a little shiny.
  • Dip the previously rolled balls in this melted chocolate and leave it to chill for 10 min in the refrigerator.
  • Roll the cooled balls in desiccated coconut... and go eat!
  • For the outer coating you can also use cocoa powder, sweet candies and nuts. If you use these coatings, roll the balls in them before chilling but after the coating is semi-set.
