Prepare a flat baking tray with some parchment paper.
Taking 8 sections of the dough roll into balls and press down into a cookie shape. Using your finger make a well in the centre of each cookie roughly 1.5 cm across and .75 cm deep.
In a small bowl combine the chocolate ball ingredients and mix into a dough. Using your hands make 8 small balls and insert these into the cookie base.

Place 2 small blobs on the chocolate balls using the white chocolate to make eyes.
