Cherry Ripe Balls

As much as I try to stick to my shopping list (and budget) when doing our grocery shopping, always sometimes I just can’t resist an impulse buy.  I regularly get sucked in by the bright and colourful displays at the end of the aisles, telling myself it would be crazy not to buy the latest products and I’m really saving money buying items on special.  So it was no surprise I succumbed to a recent special on chocolate bars , Cherry Ripes in particular – and when they just 90 cents each – who could blame me?

The Cherry Ripes sat patiently in our pantry for a week before I noticed one had disappeared and knew I needed to make something with them quickly.  While flicking through an old recipe book I came across a recipe for rumballs, and straight away I knew what I was going to make.

    I know this sounds crazy…but I’m not a big Cherry Ripe fan. Cherry Ripes and Turkish Delights – a big no from me. However. I see coconut. Lotsa coconut. That might make it work :) x

    Now, I’m not a big fan of Cherry Ripe per se, but these look super yummy. I bet the only problem with these babies is that they taste too goo. By the way, if you don’t want to eat your Turkish Delight, give it to me, I love it!
