Even the title sounds delicious! I am in love with Bliss Balls, how I got to my ancient 35 years old without discovering these I have no idea. Chances are high that it’s because I’m not in the healthy department of any café or recipe book! Well with the discovery of these and using the gorgeous dried fruit from Sunreal this is all about to change!
Bliss Balls are little balls chock full of goodness, usually made with dried fruit, nuts or seeds, coconut and bound with coconut oil, rice syrup or honey. They are healthy and a wonderful tasty alternative to a biscuit at afternoon tea time!
There are so many possible combinations you can absolutely experiment with your favourite dried fruits, seeds and nuts flavours. I am a huge fan of using cranberries in both savoury and sweet dishes and these cranberries are really plump and flavoursome unlike some I have used which seem quite shrivelled and past their best! Using the dates and cocoa gives this a lovely richness that meant my kids were instantly fans of the “Chocolate Bliss Balls”, they are dense and sticky and would make a perfect “take-a-plate” dish to any gathering. You can use raw cacao in place of cocoa but it is not something I have in my cupboards.
One of the great things about Bliss Balls is they can be stored in the freezer, so you can make lots of batches ahead of time, store them and bring them out when you need them. You serve them cold from the fridge so they last really well.
I will be sharing lots more Bliss Ball recipes over the coming weeks so you are sure to find a combination you love! They would be perfect for the ladies after golf, on the Christmas table or in kids lunch boxes, they are perfect!
Here is my latest recipe – you will love it!
