Chocolate Walnut Bites

Not only that Serbia is not friendly to those who are vegetarians, but if you have allergies to nuts, you should also watch out. Serbian deserts are loaded with walnuts.

Chocolate Walnut Bites are quick and easy to make. No baking required.


1/2 sugar
3/4 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups ground walnuts
1 egg white, beaten
1 tsp rum
1 tbsp water
1/2 finely ground walnuts for decoration

Melt sugar in water over medium heat. When the solution is completely clear remove from heat and add chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix well. Add beaten egg white and run, and mix again.

Leave the mixture in the refrigerator to harden so that you can shape it. With wet hands form 1/2-1 in balls. Roll them in finely ground walnuts and place on the serving tray. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

If you have small baking cups, you can fill them with the mixture and then leave in the refrigerator to harden before serving. Sprinkle walnuts on top.
