Sweet Cheese Balls


The perfect treat to make for yourself or your friends for their birthdays. All you need is a bowl and spoon and a hand grater. No oven required. I made these last year for my son’s aufruf and everyone loved them. I stashed away a few in the freezer (they taste awesome straight from the freezer, especially with a coffee or hot cocoa!) and was so grateful to find them a few days later. I came home from my son’s wedding starving, and at two in the morning, these were just what I needed! Thanks, HDG.


Prepare Cheese Balls

1. Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl until well combined.
2. Form into small balls and place on a plate.
3. Roll in grated chocolate and place in a container.
4. Store in freezer until ready to use.  


You can use a lower or higher fat quark cheese — ½%, 3%, or 9%. Also, if you don’t have a food processor to make crumbs, put the biscuits in a bag and pound with a chicken cutlet hammer.


To achieve the look in the picture, grate 3 large squares each of white, milk, and dark chocolate and place in 3 small plates. Roll balls in the chocolate and freeze each color separately. (You can nosh the leftover grated chocolate!) Put them in a box, tie with a ribbon, and present to your roommate. She will be your bff!


If you prefer a tangier taste, use one and a half to two tablespoons of the juice of a lemon.
