I've actually got two other things, one will be finished this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I really want to get it up tomorrow.. so I will make sure it gets finished. When I'm on a roll I'm go for it. Actually I'm always making things it's just getting the time at my computer to post them.
I'd made the 'other thing' this morning but it was bugging me cos I wanted to make something else, something that was quick and easy, but a little bit different and special. As I walked into my kitchen and opened the pantry I spotted the Hazelnuts! that was it.. chocolate, hazelnuts! perfect! I liked the idea of making something with a chocolate twist cos so many people love chocolate!
Here is this quick and simple recipe. As long as your fruit mince is ready this will only take 5 minutes to put together. You could also shape them into little puddings and use them on Christmas day.. that would be really cute. I am going to experiment with something that you could cover it with.. think white chocolate, custard, cream type of thing!
Chocolate Hazelnut Christmas Bliss Balls
I only made a small batch because I have made quite a few things out of the batch of fruit mince I made the other day.
Makes: approx. 10-12 balls
For these I ground:
1 cup hazelnuts – mine where activated and dehydrated but it’s not essential
1 cup dried coconut
1 ½ to 2 tbs raw cacao powder
Approx. 2/3 cup fruit mince
2 tbs hazelnuts
2 tbs dried cranberries
2 tbs dried coconut
Ground the nuts and coconut until fine then add to a mixing bowl with the cacao powder and fruit mince. Stir to combine and make thick dough that can be rolled into balls. If it’s too soft add more ground hazelnut, coconut or both.
Shape into balls and roll in the lightly ground Hazelnuts, cranberries and coconut.
Enjoy!! I did.. :-)
