These chocolate and mint balls are an easy no-bake recipe. With a hard chocolate outer shell and a smooth, soft, and creamy peppermint inside, they are a great treat for a holiday party or Christmas gift!
My podcast guest, Alexandra Taylor, reminisces about how she and her brothers would "eat some of the dough while we were rolling the balls in preparation for rolling them in chocolate and coconut... we took full advantage of all the goodness stuck to our hands."
– Heavy Whipping Cream – Flour – Cream of Tartar – Powdered Sugar – Chocolate Optional Toppings – Shredded Coconut (Alexandria traditionally used this in Norway) – Crushed Candy Cane – Festive Sprinkles
