I am loving all the recipes that are out there for Bliss Balls or truffles depending what you call them! But I realise that sometimes they contain so many ingredients, or unusual ingredients that we don’t always have these on hand in the cupboard.
So with that in mind I thought I would play with the most basic of ingredients and see how I got on – in fact I used only 3 ingredients and they are pretty tasty! If you want an even more flavourful Apricot Bliss Ball check out my recipe for an Apricot, Nut & Coconut Bliss Balls Here .
And this recipe can easily be made with the kids, I used a food processor, but if you do not have one or a mixer simply chop the soaked apricots as finely as you can!
So here is the recipe – it is simple as. Feel free to add to it if you want, with a bit of honey, or chocolate chips or cover it in white chocolate to be extra fancy, only limited by your pantry ingredients!
- 1 Cup Dried Apricots (organic if you can find them)
- 1 Cup Boiling Water
- 1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
- 2 Tablespoons Orange Juice - freshly squeezed
- Small amount of coconut for rolling
- Add Apricots and boiling water together in a small bowl and set aside for at least 5 minutes
- Drain well, discard the water and add apricots to a food mixer or chop finely with sharp knife.
- Squeeze orange, some for recipe some for drinking!
- Add the orange and coconut to chopped apricots and mix well until combined, should come together and be sticky enough to roll into balls, you may need to add a little more orange juice.
- Take a teaspoon sized amount and roll into a ball, then roll the bliss ball in coconut.
- Repeat with remaining mixture.
- Pop the balls in the freezer for 20 minutes to set.
- Store in the fridge in an airtight container
- They last really well in the fridge.
And it is as easy as that! I hope you enjoy this simple variation to a Bliss Ball Recipe. You can find the link to the delicious Cranberry, Date & Cashew Bliss Ball Here plus of course check out my Sweet Treat tab for more deliciousness than you can imagine!
