Chocolate balls with black rice

The crunchy puffed black rice makes these chocolate balls very tasty.



Ingredients for the chocolate balls with black rice

100 g of dark chocolate

1/2 a cup of tahini

2 spoonful of sugar

1 pinch of salt

1 teaspoonful of olive oil

1/2 a cup of black rice


Melt the chocolate in a bain marie. Mix the chocolate, tahini, sugar and salt and let the mixture cool until it is solid, for about 20 minutes.


In the meantime, heat the oil in a small frying pan. When it is warm cook the rice keeping on stirring. After about 1 minute the rice will crackle and become puffed. When you obtain puffed rice place it in a plate with a few sheets of kitchen paper. The rice should be crunchy.


Form the chocolate balls using your hands and a spoon. Let them cool for about 5 minutes and then roll the balls on puffed rice. Keep them in the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving.
