Rainbow Chocolate Balls

Rainbow Chocolate Balls

Easy peasey colorful chocolate candy recipe. Great for parties, especially for kids who love the colorful sprinkles.

  Total Time: 120 Min 

  Yield: 10 pieces



Chocolate Coating

  • 1 1⁄2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips (use pure chocolate chips)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

How to Make It:

Step 1:

Using a rolling pin to crush the cookies into small crumbs. Tip: if you place the cookies in a freezer bag, you'll eliminate a messy cleanup.

Place the crushed cookies in a bowl.

Step 2:


Add cocoa, coconut and calcium lactate powder. Stir together then add condensed milk.

Step 3:

Flour your hands to prevent sticking. Then roll the mixture between your palms to produce spherical balls.

Step 4:


Making the chocolate coating. Place the chocolate and butter in a small bowl. Place the bowl into a larger pot which contains very warm water (about100-110 F) the water should reach only halfway up the 2-cup bowl with the chocolate (DO NOT LET EVEN 1 DROP WATER MIX WITH CHOCOLATE - IT WILL SPOIL IT!)

Step 5:

Stir mixture constantly with a small spatula until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth (this should take about 16-18 minutes, do not rush the melted process).

If necessary, replace the water with more very warm water. Remove the 2-cup bowl with melted chocolate from the water and continue to stir until all the chocolate is cooled slightly (about 2-3 minutes).

Step 6:


Set one candy onto skewer or a two-pronged fork, then completely dip candy into melted chocolate. Gently tap the fork against side of the bowl to remove any excess melted chocolate. Place onto baking sheet lined with waxed paper.

Repeat with remaining candy.

Step 7:


Roll the coated balls in rainbow sprinkles and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes. Then enjoy!


NOTE: Avoid all types of moisture when melting the chocolate, any steam or drops of moisture can cause the mixture to "seize" or become very firm, crumbly and grainy, if this occurs it can be corrected by stirring in 1 teaspoon shortening for each 2 ounces of melted chocolate.
