I was so tempted to call these chocolate malt truffles “Chocolate Malty Balls” but I wasn’t sure if everyone would get the joke. I’m referring to a South Park episode that aired around 15 years ago while I was in college. I sort of assume that’s a classic but I wonder sometimes if I’m not starting to show my age with certain references. Not that I’m old. But you know.
I was never a big fan of South Park and couldn’t tell you the last time I watched an episode. But I still remember when the show was young and I could not believe some of the stuff they were getting away with. I clearly remember watching the chocolate salty balls episode with friends as tears streamed down my face and we all laughed hysterically at how ridiculous it was. And I guess I’m still a bit immature because it cracks me up to this day.
Ok, if you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about here’s a clip from the episode (NSF Mature People):
You should definitely, um, put my chocolate malty balls in your mouth. Because they’re really really good. And very easy to make.
I used King Arthur Flour’s Belcolade bittersweet chocolate disks but any high quality bittersweet (or semi-sweet) chocolate will work.
