Candy-coated chocolate balls—almost too pretty to eat, but somehow you’ll manage.

Assuming I don’t eat all of them in one sitting, should they be stored in the refrigerator?
Hi Patty, according to the recipe, they can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Please let us know how they come out (and how many you can manage to eat at once)
Made these for a party on Saturday- I rolled half of them in cinnamon and the other half in a chocolate-chili powder mixture– They were a HUGE hit!! The cinnamon ones were particularly amazing–next time, I’m adding cinnamon as it cooks and they should be extra-fabulous!
These were easy until I got to decorating them. I made the mistake of rolling them all and *then* trying to decorate when I should have just dropped them into the sprinkles immediately after rolling. I think my kitchen was too warm and it was just a sticky mess everywhere despite lightly spraying my hands with nonstick spray.
And then the sprinkles.
They are very cute and delicious but tested my patience.
AWESOME! For two main reasons.
First, I love that you can do lots of different variations on the theme (Alicevirginia – must try yours). I rolled some of mine in coconut, some in rainbow sprinkles (for the kids) and BEST OF ALL, filled some with dulce de leche (admittedly a teeny bit of a pain) and rolled in a mix of golden sprinkles and sea salt crystals. Next time, I think I will just give a light dusting of sea salt crystals. I called them Argentine tango because they had the dulce de leche and were all sparkly. Fun!
Second, this is a recipe that young kids can really get into. My daughter had a blast – she said it was like sticky yummy play dough. It is.
Sounds awesome! Quick, easy and with ingredients most of us have on hand!
These are so cute and tasty! I made mine a little too big, but the flavor is wonderful, kind of like solid hot fudge. Great recipe, very easy!
