Although I’ve made a few peppermint recipes in my time (Peppermint Slice and Peppermint Cheesecake) I’m actually not the biggest fan of peppermint and chocolate together – crazy I know! This didn’t stop me grabbing a few Peppermint Crisp bars from the supermarket when they were on special recently, as I have been wanting to try this Chocolate Peppermint Balls recipe for MONTHS – ever since I came across it in an old football club recipe book.
Recipes really don’t get much more simple than this, and the boys were a little disappointed when it took us no time at all to put these together. They were both eager to have a go at rolling the balls, but this mixture is quite sticky and their attempts quickly ended in tears – literally.
We made these the good old fashioned way but you can also easily make them using your Thermomix which takes next to no time at all.
