In the avalanche of holiday cookie recipes available this time of year, it can be difficult to choose which to actually make. Solve that problem with unique and delicious recipes from Tasting Table, like these Deck the Ramen Ball cookies. We guarantee you've never seen treats like this.


  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces 70% dark chocolate, finely chopped (about 1½ cups)
  • 1 (4.2-ounce) pack ramen (the cheap stuff that when eaten raw tastes like crackers)
  • 2 tablespoons roasted black sesame seeds
  • Maldon sea salt or fleur de sel
  • Cooking Directions

    Bring the cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Place chocolate in a medium bowl and pour cream over it. Let melt for 1 minute, then stir with a spatula in tight circles until smooth. (If there are still lumps, buzz the chocolate with a hand held mixer.) Transfer to a small baking dish, spreading the chocolate mixture out to help it cool faster. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

    Place the ramen noodles in a plastic storage bag. Bang them with a heavy ladle or rolling pin until finely ground. (You should have about 1 cup.) Transfer the ramen to a shallow bowl. Mix in the roasted black sesame seeds.

    Roll the chocolate by hand into large grape-size spheres and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Warming the chocolate slightly in your hands will help it stick to the toppings.) Immediately sprinkle the rolled chocolate with a little sea salt, pressing down so the salt sticks to the truffle, then roll it in the ramen mixture.
