These bliss balls are the perfect combination of ingredients for a satisfying treat.

  • Dark chocolate, 4½ oz(s)
  • Coconut oil, ¼ cup
  • Dates, 8.8 oz, pitted
  • Almond meal, ¾ cup(s)
  • Shredded coconut, unsweetened, ½ cup(s)
  • Cocoa powder, 2 tbsp(s), plus extra for dusting
  • Raspberries, 4.4 oz(s)

Method

Place the chocolate and coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered in 1 minute bursts on High, stirring every minute with a spoon until melted and smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.

Place the dates, almond meal, coconut and cocoa into a food processor. Pulse until dates are finely chopped. Add the raspberries and melted chocolate mixture and pulse until the mixture almost comes together. Transfer to a bowl, refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm enough to roll into balls.

Roll mixture into 36 small balls, approximately 1 ounce each. Place onto a tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Dust with cocoa powder. Enjoy 3 chilled bliss balls per serve.

TIP: Bliss balls will keep for 10 days in an airtight container in the fridge. They also freeze really well, place into an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months, they may need a little dusting with cocoa just before serving.
