Soccer Ball Recipe

Happy New Year! January is birthday party month on Planning With Kids! Over the next couple of weeks I will post birthday party ideas and recipes for birthday party food. While I am aiming to publish more nutritious and varied recipes on the blog in 2013, we still love a party at house PWK and love to share what has worked at our parties. If you are planning a party soon, you might like to check out my Parties With Kids e-book.

I made these for our son’s 6th birthday party last year. They taste amazing, although I do have a strong love of white chocolate.

They are very easy to make as the ball part is really just a chocolate ball, then I dipped it in white chocolate to cover and make it look smooth. My intention had been to use an edible marker and draw lines around the balls to make them look a little more soccerish, but time got the better of me.

6. Break up the chocolate and place in a heavy based microwave safe bowl. Add oil and stir a little so the chocolate is coated in oil. Melt on high for about 45 seconds. Stir. If chocolate requires further melting, do so with 15 second bursts, stirring each time.

7. Once chocolate is melted, use a stick to dip the ball into the melted chocolate.

8. Place them gently on a tray lined with baking paper and place in the fridge to set.

NB: There is no menu plan this week nor will there be for the next couple of weeks as I have written and scheduled these posts in advance while I have an online break. Hope you are managing some type of break too!
