01 Dec Christmas Bliss Balls Recipe

Christmas-Bliss-Balls-Recipe-1024x1024

This Christmas bliss ball recipe is really fun to make and the balls are infused with all the gorgeous flavours of the season – vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and orange. They are just like cute little Christmas puddings!  Christmas bliss balls make a great homemade gift and are so much healthier than most of the other sweet treats around at this time of year. They are perfect to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of spicy chai tea and they keep really well in the fridge.

Christmas Bliss Balls Recipe

MAKES 12 BALLS

INGREDIENTS

for the balls:
1 cup pecans
1 cup medjool dates
1/4 cup sultanas
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp all spice
pinch salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 orange

for decoration:
2 tbsp dessicated coconut
24 goji berries/dried cranberries
24 pumpkin seeds

DIRECTIONS

Put the pecans in the food processor and blend until finely chopped. Add the dates, sultanas, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, all spice, salt and cocoa powder.

Grate the zest of the orange in to the food processor, and squeeze in the juice of half the orange. Blend everything together until the mixture has formed into one ball.

Remove the mixture and cut in to 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece in to a round ball and place on to a plate.

Spoon the coconut on to a small plate and roll the top of half the balls in this. Decorate with two goji berries and two pumpkin seeds on top of each like holly leaves!

Store in the fridge.
