My Secret Chocolate Balls Recipe

Chocolate Balls
I don’t usually have contingency plans. I’m not that organized. I believe that contingency plans are for governments.
But there are exceptions. Sometimes I have to deal with a minor catastrophe or (using a more positive attitude) a minor challenge. Like when I‘m in a huge rush to pick up the kids from school, and I know that I’m not going to make it unless I fly there.
I always have a contingency plan especially for that kind of crisis.

But today I want to talk about my ‘last minute invitation’ contingency plan. 

Once in a while I like to spontaneously visit friends or family at short notice, and I don’t like to arrive empty-handed.
This is when I get out my secret recipe for chocolate balls. My kids love to help me. We make them quickly (years of practice pays off!) and that leaves me plenty of time for the main task: wrapping.
Chocolate Mixture
I always try to wrap the chocolate balls as nicely as I can and they always get great compliments.
