Culinary Corner: Choco Bliss Balls

5th May 2017

Bliss balls recipe

Go into any café and you’ll probably see bliss balls sitting pretty on the counter. But did you know they are super easy for you and your children to make yourselves? We take inspiration from Sam Hall’s family from Wallaby Street Early Learning Centre for this sweet and chocolately bliss balls recipe.

According to Sam’s mum, “The hardest part about this recipe is leaving the mixture to stand without eating it all!”

Choco Bliss Balls

Makes 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dates (we recommend medjool)
  • 1 cup of nuts of your choice (almonds, cashews, macadamias or a combination works)
  • 3 tbs organic cacao powder
  • 2 heaped tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Method

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and mix until combined. Scrape the sides of bowl and blend again. If the mixture is too dry, add 1tbs water
  2. Roll into balls using around 1 heaped tbs per ball
  3. Coat balls in shredded coconut or raw cacao if desired
  4. Refrigerate for around one hour until set

Tips

  • Keep your bliss balls in the fridge so they don’t melt.
  • Bliss balls can be stored in the freezer and brought to room temperature to eat.
