Bliss balls are one of my favourite sweet treats. These apricot chocolate date free bliss balls are perfect if you’re not a fan of dates. This weekend I wanted to make date free bliss balls, and I came up with this yummy recipe with a base of dried apricots instead of dates. I’ve been enjoying them with a cuppa for morning tea this week and they’re delicious (especially the ones I dipped in dark chocolate!).
Here’s how to make them:
Apricot chocolate date free bliss balls
1/2 cup dried apricots, soaked in boiling water for 1 hour
70g ground almonds
1/4 cup cashew nut pieces
1/4 cup crushed almond pieces
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons almond butter or peanut butter
3 tablespoons of currants (optional)
To coat you can use:
Soak the dried apricots in boiling water for an hour so they soften. Drain the water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place in a blender along with the ground almonds, cocoa and peanut butter/almond butter. Blend until the mixture comes together and the nuts are crushed into small pieces. Mix in the crushed almonds. Roll the mixture into balls.
I dipped some of my apricot chocolate bliss balls in melted dark chocolate, rolled some in coconut and the rest in chia seeds. Choose the coating of your choice 🙂
Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
Enjoy your date free bliss balls!
