For the filling:
100g baker’s chocolate, chopped in pieces
100g cream
For the Loukoumades:
500g whole milk
20g fresh brewer’s yeast
30g sugar
5g salt
520g flour
corn oil for frying
honey for serving
For the cream:
Heat up the cream and pour it over the baker’s chocolate in a mixing bowl, and mix unitl the chocolate is fully melted. Put the cream into the fridge and let it sit until it’s fully chilled. Remove from fridge and work the mixture into small balls, and place on a sheet of wax paper. Put the wax paper with the praline balls into the freezer for several hours. 
For the Loukoumades:
Warm up a bit of the milk and dissolve the yeast in it. Add the sugar and the salt, and mix. Pour in the rest of the milk and all of the flour, and mix well. Leave the mixture in a warm area for at least 1 hour. Taking a little bit of the dough work it smoothly around each frozen praline ball. Fry the balls in hot oil, turning them continously with a slotted spoon until golden brown. Let the loukoumades dry on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the grease. Serve hot with honey drizzled on top.
