Chocolate Halva Bliss Balls

Updated: Jun 6




Delectable chocolate halva bliss balls with 4 variations. It is a really simple recipe that makes 21 bliss balls, depending on the size of your balls. The recipe is incredibly easy so feel free to seek help from the kids with the mixing and rolling.


These have been created to celebrate my parent's 49th wedding anniversary.

I love you Mum and Dad xx




Ingredients:


Bliss Balls

1/2 cup unprocessed oats

1/2 cup dried dates, pips removed

1/2 raw cacao powder

1/2 cup un-hulled tahini

1/2 cup almonds

1/3 cup desiccated coconut

3 tablespoons of Manuka honey (or 4-5 if you have a very sweet tooth)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt


For the coating:

1/3 cup desiccated coconut

1/3 cup crushed peanuts


Method:

- In a blender combine all of the ingredients in the 'bliss balls' section.

- If you have time and to make the rolling easier, place the mixture in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

- Add the crushed peanuts for the coating into one wide-brimmed bowl.

- Add the desiccated coconut for the coating to another wide-brimmed bowl.

- Remove the bliss ball mixture from the fridge, wash hands well and/or wear disposable food-grade gloves.


- For a plain chocolate halva ball, roll the mixture into a ball. Set aside.

- For a coconut coating, roll the mixture into a ball, as above step, then roll through the desiccated coconut helping the coconut stick to the ball. Set aside.

- For a crushed peanut option, collect about a tablespoon of the mixture. Then form into a ball whilst rolling through the crushed nuts, gently sticking it all together so the peanuts become part of the bliss ball. Set aside

- For the final option, repeat the steps for the crushed peanut option then roll the ball in the desiccated coconut to coat the outside.

- Place all the bliss balls onto a platter. Store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm the bliss balls.


Serving:

Eat straight away or keep in the fridge for up to a month as there is nothing perishable in the mix such as fresh fruit. I love to eat them as is or with a warm cup of chai tea to dunk the bliss balls into for extra yumminess.
