Chocolate Salty Balls
This Chocolate Salty Balls recipe is inspired by and adapted from South Park’s Chef song “Chocolate Salty Balls” and is part of a link up with like minded geeky foodies. We’ve all made a toon inspired food dish for this link up. #ToonFood
Warning: If you are unaware of what South Park is, it’s a cartoon for adults. Please don’t mistake this cartoon for a children’s cartoon. South Park is an animated satirical series with a lot, and I mean A LOT of swearing, mature themes and over-the-top cartoon violence. I think the age rating is 15+ to watch it. That said, if you’re mature enough and can look past this you’ll see an hilarious cartoon.
Ok, now that I’ve got the warning out of the way, let’s go ahead with the recipe. In the cartoon the character Chef sings a song called Chocolate Salty Balls, and ever since I heard the song I’ve been wanting to try out his recipe.
Needless to say, when the topic of toon food came up for a link up, this was the first thing that popped into my mind. So I set out to recreate the recipe. First exactly as mentioned in the song but I didn’t like it much, the balance of the recipe was just off, so I got to tweaking a few things without messing too much with the original recipe from the song. It took me 5 tries to perfect the recipe.
Let’s get started with the Chocolate Salty Balls recipe
First off, get all your ingredients.
Sugar, flour, melted butter, melted chocolate, cherry brandy, egg whites, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Next to that you’ll also need extra butter, salt, condensed milk and golden syrup for the topping.
First, prepare your flour mixture by sifting flour.
And salt into a bowl and set aside.
Next, turn on your sound and click on the video of the song above and start singing. ?
Now, take one table spoon of cinnamon (sing it with me…)
[The song says two tablespoons but I like it better just using one]
And two or three egg whites
[I use three]
Now let’s go add the butter (melted…).
Stick it all in a bowl baby, stir with a wooden spoon.
[Aaaand you’ll find out that stirring with a wooden spoon really doesn’t do much, so grab a whisk instead]
Whisk it all up to a nice and thick, fluffy consistency.
Pour in a cup of unsweetened chocolate.
And a half a cup of brandy.
[I use cherry brandy]
Then throw in a bag or two of sugar.
And just a pinch of VANILLA.
[I’m obviously using my homemade vanilla extract again]
Mix it all with a whisk till combined.
Pour in the flour mixture, you’ll be in heaven soon.
Mix it all up good.
To a shiny thick, brownie batter consistency.
Grease up your cake ball tin, cause I hate when my balls stick. Preheat the oven to 350 °F / 175 °C and give that spoon a lick!
[Fill the cake ball tin all the way to the top. The batter won’t fully rise to the top so you want as much in them as possible. Stick it into the oven and bake for 20 minutes
When your balls are baked, take them out of the oven an leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes before taking them out and leaving them to cool further on a wire rack.]
In the meantime add condensed milk, golden syrup, butter into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add salt and boil some more till you get a thick caramel sauce.
The sauce should be thick and golden like this. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the chocolate balls. Finish with a few salt flakes on top to make them proper Chocolate Salty Balls.
Hey everybody have you seen my balls they’re big and salty and brown (with a salted caramel topping). If you ever need a quick pick me up just stick these balls in your mouth and suck ’em!
