Brownie Balls | Recipe
This recipe came out looking a lot different to the picture in my head but was still delicious and because of their cute (big) bite size form, bagging them could act as a sweet (literally!) Christmas gift.
I had a BBQ last weekend and thought I'd give cake pops a crack. I imagined delicate white pops. Except I then decided I wanted them to balls, not pops (no stick wastage and easier to transport). And then I thought wouldn't a brownie center be better than cake. The last change came from me burning the white chocolate I wanted to coat the balls with, but maybe that was a good thing otherwise the balls would have been too sweet.
This is what I love about cooking, its a creative process with twists and turns and (mostly) delicious outcomes.
