Thanks for bringing this to my attention Suzan. Step 2 should say Stir in 125g of chocolate.

This leaves a remaining 125g for coating purposes.
How much chocolate goes into balls and how much for coating?
You say melt 'remaining' chocolate but in method you say 'stir in chocolate'.
They look yummy!!!
