Donkey Balls

Have you ever dreams of eating donkey balls? Probably not. But on Hawaii’s Big Island, it’s a must-have experience. Don’t worry, it’s not what you think.

The Donkey Balls Factory and Store is a Big Island staple, paying homage to the destination’s go local, made fresh philosophy. Based on local legend, the crude-sounding store actually sells artisanal chocolates, made in-house from Guittard Chocolate. Best of all, visitors to the store can watch the candy being made through the clear glass factory room, as well as enjoy free samples of numerous varieties at the counter (if you don’t see the kind you want to try, just ask!).

“Once upon a time, Kona Nightingale carried the freshly harvested macnuts (Macadamia nut) from the fertile volcanic hills. An uncracked Hawaiian macnut looks much like a ball. Men processing the macnuts would laugh and say ‘here come the Donkey Balls.’ And so began a tale of two balls.”

Donkey Balls come in a wide variety of flavors, all with funny names, for example, “Blue Balls” (dark and white chocolate with blue coloring); “Dirty Balls” (milk or dark chocolate rolled in cocoa powder); “Salty Balls” (milk or dark chocolate dusted with sea salt); and “Flaming Balls” (milk or dark chocolate rolled in Cayenne pepper). They also sell a line of boar and monkey balls, with vegan products available.

Whether you’re a chocolate lover or not, I highly recommend a stop at the Donkey Ball Factory and Store, even if just to peruse the fun items. Sauces, jams, honeys, coffees and baked goods can also be purchased.


2 packages crescent rolls pref buttery flavored
1 16 oz cream cheese, don’t use fat free… they r horrible
1 packages jimmy dean sausage (standard size)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 small fresh onion… minced    Instructions
cook sausage, garlic powder and onion until brown and lightly crispy.
drain sausage. does not hafta be rinsed
take room temp cream cheese and sausage mixture. I do not add salt and pepper because of butter flavoring in rolls.
unroll crescent rolls and cut crescent in half to make a triangle.
take a teaspoon of the mixture and spoon into each crescent roll. then wrap mixture up into little ball making sure the mixture is sealed inside.
place balls on the cookie sheets and bake for 8 minutes. DON’T BURN BOTTOMS.
cool for 3 minutes should make about 40-48 balls.
a reviewer suggested that she had to cook them longer (14 minutes) … so it may take longer depending on size..
I didn’t come up with the name!!! LOLSource : allrecipes,com
