Dude, when you make them you have to walk around with a tray full, then when you present them say, in a heavy french accent
 " put my balls into your mouth"

Almost every year for Christmas my mom makes crab balls and I always say the same thing "I didnt even know they have them"  Its been twenty years and she still doesn't get it.

morticaixavier  you can definitely just use straight beer, I'm not a pro by any means, but what I have been taught is that water is an enemy of chocolate and the less water the longer the shelf life of the product.

capozzoli I think a peanut custard pie of some sort would be amazing! let me know if you come up with a good recipe. As for the white dots they are from a transfer sheet. Its just colored cocoa butter that's designed on as plastic sheet called a "transfer sheet" applied to warm chocolate & then once sets the cocoa butter design adheres to the chocolate giving it that amazing design, easier than it looks.


In theory the boiled peanut custard pie is wonderful. Havent gotten it made yet although I tried twice. The problem is the peanuts, boil them up and it is a good deal of work shelling them. They get eaten before the custard is made. ::) It is so hard not to eat them.

Im gonna give it another try this weekend. I plan on getting twice the amount of peanuts needed and then practice discipline regarding picking. . 

Tonight we are making fried banana crepes. I should take some pics.

Stand by for pics of the soon to be famous Capozzoli Boiled Peanut Custard Pie.

Well, we're talking desserts now. All I can say is, BLECH!! The Weaze don't do sweets. Rarely do I touch pies, cakes, cookies, ice cream etc.....

I'm with you, dude. Although I did do an experiment and made some sourdough doughnuts for my daughter's 4H party tonight.
They weren't bad, equally sweet and sour.

I'm with you guys, I'd much rather have a nice dessert beer than a piece of cake.  But I was in Dresden last year visiting a friend and we went out for pastries one morning.  They were much less sweet than pastries most other places.  He said it is left over from post-WWII sugar rationing in East Germany.  They just learned to get by with less, and now people prefer it that way.  I've got to say, I prefer it too.

Great videos by the way, I was thinking of Chef's balls before I got to your message Gordon, and cap, Pete Schweddy is classic.  Don't forget about his Schweddy weiner. ;D  "There's nothing quite like the look on a child's face the moment he gets a hold of his own Schweddy weiner."
