Chocolate Bliss Balls

 

We think that you'll love these chocolate bliss balls. They're packed full of ingredients to help with milk production, like almonds and apricots, but they're not just for the lactating ladies, everyone else will love them too!

You can keep them in an air-tight container in the pantry, but we also find that they keep well in a snap-lock bag in the freezer.

This recipe features in our new recipe book10 Recipes to Cook and Freeze Before you have a Baby, along with loads of other tasty and healthy recipes.In the book you'll find ideas for lunch, dinner, and a some snacks too, and guess what?It's available for free download!

Ingredients

1/2 cup dates (just the cheap pitted ones)-chopped
1/2 cup dried apricots- chopped
3 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup cashew nuts (raw, unsalted)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup dessicated coconut
2 tablespoons Dutch cocoa powder
1/4 cup dessicated coconut (extra for rolling)

Method

1. Soak the chopped dates and apricots in the 3 tablespoons of boiling water for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Blend the nuts, seeds, cocoa, and first measure of coconut in a food processor until combined.

3. Add the dates and apricots, with the water, and continue to mix in the food processor until a dough consistency is reached.

4. Roll the mixture into balls and cover in desiccated coconut.

Freezing Instructions

Place the bliss balls in a snap-lock bag and place on a flat surface in the freezer so that they don't stick together.
