The basic ingredients:

  • 8.8 oz (250 grams) chocolate 55% cocoa, chopped
  • 1 cup (250 grams) heavy cream 35% fat
  • 1 cup (100 grams) cookie crumbs (process them in a food processor)

the extras:

  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon brandy or cognac
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup chocolate sprinkles or 0.5 cup cocoa powder for coating


  1. Transfer the chocolate to a heatproof bowl. Heat the heavy cream until just before boiling and add it to the chocolate. Let it sit for 1 minute.
  2. Stir well with a spatula until the chocolate is melted and everything is smooth and homogenized. Add the honey, the brandy, and the salt and mix well. Add the cookie crumbs and mix well. Chill in the fridge until firm (about 4-6 hours or overnight).
  3. Scoop the mixture, form into balls and roll them in chocolate sprinkles or cocoa powder. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
