Chocolate Snowballs

image

I have never been so inspired as I am now, from all of you my fellow friends.  I am learning so much from everyone and am becoming open to the idea that healthy food can really be tasty food.  I am finding myself being drawn to super food options all the time when buying ingredients!  And as a result am coming up with all different types of recipes!

I absolutely adore chocolate and nuts together!  Also coconut is my ultimate favourite.  With this in mind I created these delightful yummy coconut chocolate and date balls.  Which my little one insists on calling ‘chocolate snowballs’

You have to make these! There is no doubt in my mind that you and your family will not love them.  I have had family and friends requesting me to make some for them and I have a back order to fill! I find they are so therapeutic to make too! Just to see my little ones enjoy them sooo much but at the same time KNOW how healthy and nutritious they are makes what I do worthwhile!

Have a beautiful weekend and enjoy time with your loved ones, much love D x

INGREDIENTS

200g chopped dates
120g walnuts
70g desiccated coconut
50g raisins
1 tbsp heaped nutella/chocolate spread
1 tbsp heaped cocoa powder
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp maple syrup

METHOD

• In a food processor, grind all the ingredients apart from the coconut into a paste ball

• Use a little oil in the palm of yours hands and roll out balls to a typical truffle bite size

• Dip and cover completely in the coconut and set aside on a plate.  Repeat for the rest of the mixture and chill in the fridge for at least an hour
