After thirty minutes, ensure to remove the ornament ball from the freezer. Then, carefully open the ornament. And remove the chocolate ball. Bear in mind that you have to work quickly. Doing this prevents you from touching the ball too long with your warm hands. You may also place the chocolate ball inside the freezer after unmolding it for a few minutes.

How to Make a Melting Chocolate Ball

When it comes to a chocolate sphere dessert, there are many options that you can try. One of my favorites is a melting chocolate ball drizzled in caramel sauce. Let’s take a closer look. For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of melted chocolate chips (any flavor)
  • 1 cup of caramel sauce
  • 1 Caramilk bar
  • 3 brownie bites
  • 1 cup of raspberries

Now all you need to do is:

  1. Add your chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and gently heat in the microwave, in 15-20 second intervals. Stir each time you remove it from the microwave until completely melted.
  2. Use a 6-cavity silicone mold and add around a tablespoon of chocolate to each cavity. Spread the chocolate out into the molds evenly and then chill for at least 10 minutes.
  3. After this time, add the same amount of chocolate to the molds to make a thick ball, and cover any gaps you may have missed. Chill for another 10 minutes or so.
  4. Once set, carefully remove your balls from the molds. Heat a pan over low heat and place the edges of each half circle onto the pan for a few seconds. This will remove any imperfections and help your balls to stick together.
  5. Place a brownie bite inside your dome, as well as a few berries and gently cover your dome, pressing the edges carefully together. Hold for at least 10 seconds.

Tips and Tricks: Chocolate Ball That Melts

First and foremost, when handling or working with chocolate, ensure that your ornament, utensils, and bowl is completely dry. 

Moreover, avoid covering your microwaveable bowl when melting chocolate. For that reason, covering or putting a lid on your bowl may cause condensation. As a result, it will ruin your chocolate or cause seizing.

Furthermore, avoid using a wooden spoon to mix because wood can retain moisture that may ruin your chocolate mixture.
