They’re sweet, they’re chewy, they’re minty and they’re chocolatey. Best of all – they’re easy to make, contain no refined sugar, and they’re kid approved and lunchbox friendly. They’re my Christmas Snowballs!
These Christmas bliss balls are so delicious they were gone in less than 24 hours the first time I made them. Both the kids and hubby were grabbing them straight from the freezer and eating them without waiting for them to thaw!
Like most of my recipes, these freeze really well. You can put them straight into lunchboxes frozen, eat them straight from the freezer, or put a few in the fridge to soften as you want them.
10 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 tablespoon dessicated coconut, plus extra for rolling
1 tablespoon raw cacao
pinch of sea salt
- Add the dates, coconut oil and peppermint extract to a food processor. Process till smooth.
- Add the remaining ingredients and process again till well incorporated.
- Remove the blades and use a teaspoon to scoop out a small amount. Roll into a ball, then roll in the extra coconut to coat. If the mixture seems too runny and sticky to roll, put the food processor bowl in the fridge for 20 minutes before trying again.
- Pop them into the fridge until hard, then store them in a jar or tupperware container in the freezer.
