Introduction

Ingredients

Serves: 12-30

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 125 walnut pieces
  • 300 milk (or dark chocolate)

Method

Chocolate Coffee Caramel Walnut Balls is a community recipe submitted by Sooli and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Place the sweetened condensed milk and instant coffee into a large saucepan and heat over medium to high heat. Continue to stir the mixture scraping the bottom and sides of the pan in a fast regular movement, you need to constantly stir or the mixture will burn, and to incorporate the bits that have caramelised. Cook the mix for about 10 minutes or until it is thick and a dark caramel colour. It will be difficult to stir at this stage and should be similar in texture to thick porridge.
  • Take the pan off the heat and add the chopped walnuts. Stir in quickly and tip out onto a lightly buttered tray to cool. Mixture can be placed in the fridge or freezer to cool.
  • Once cool enough to handle I find it easiest to cut it into small squares and then roll them into balls as this produces a more consistent size. Place the balls on a tray and refrigerate or freeze until cold.
  • Melt chocolate and dip balls into the chocolate and place on tray to set.
  • Additional Information

    I find a soup spoon the easiest way to get them out of the chocolate. I make these for Christmas every year and they keep wonderfully in the freezer for several months. Just remember to take them out and allow to warm to room temperature before eating so that you don't break your teeth. Makes between 24 to 30 depending on size.
