Nutty Bliss Balls

Bliss Balls

As promised on Friday here is my recipe for Bliss Balls! Inspired by Julia and Libby’s Bounty Ball recipe, these balls have the same base but with a few added treats – hazelnut, almond meal, apricots and chilli chocolate!

To make about 40 bliss balls I threw the following into the food processor:

  • 1 cup of raw cashew nuts
  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnuts
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup of coconut cream
  • 2 tbsps of coconut oil
  • A handful of dried apricots and prunes
  • Once ground to a thick paste (add a little more coconut cream if it is too dry) roll into small balls. Put these into the freezer until hard.

    Once set you can then put on the top coating. Mix together:

  • 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons of Kokoleka Chili Hot Chocolate
  • You can then coat the set balls in this mixture before finishing them off by rolling in desiccated coconut. Place the balls back in the freezer.

    The balls are now pretty much ready. You can keep them in the freezer or transfer them to the fridge. I don’t like eating super cold food so I personally prefer them in the fridge.

    The great thing about bliss balls is that once you have the base down you can edit them as much as you like. More nuts, less nuts, more fruits, less fruit. Experiment!
