These taste like cherry ripe, only healthier. The rolls are great snacks, party food and lunch box treats, and the balls have a cherry liqueur and Malibu for the adults, and are fantastic after dinner treats.

They are gluten, lactose, nut and refined sugar free.

Split the mixture in half.

Cherry Ripe Logs And Adults Only Balls

Add the cherry liqueur and Malibu to the remaining mixture, blend for 30 seconds to combine.
Roll tablespoon sized mixture into balls and roll in desiccated coconut.
They can be served immediately or allowed to firm up in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Tips
Wet hands to roll the logs and balls as the mixture is sticky.
Cherries can be substituted for dried cranberries if required and still taste great.
For richer chocolate flavoured balls add Kahlua instead of cherry liqueur.
