These are a chocolate bliss ball made with dates and no added sugar.

If you want an even lower calorie snack, I did a few rolled in coconut instead of in the dark chocolate - either way, they are far healthier than ones you would buy in the shops, with no added sugars.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus 1 hours fridge/soaking
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Serves: About 20 balls

Ingredients
180 g Medjool dates, pitted (or I use Macro brand also
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
50 g walnuts
100 g dark chocolate (70%)

Method
Soak the dates for 30 minutes in boiling water, and then drain

Put the dates plus cacao, coconut oil, and walnuts in a processor or blender.

Blend until the mixture is combined - does not matter if there are small bits in it.

Put in the freezer for 30 minutes

Roll the mixture into anywhere between 12 and 20 balls - I prefer smaller ones as they are quite rich.

Put on a tray on baking paper and put in the fridge again for 30 minutes to harden.

Just before you take them out, melt the chocolate in the microwave.

Get the ingredients ready all in the one spot.

Roll them in the melted chocolate and put back on the tray and in the fridge.

I used a tooth pick to turn them around in the melted chocolate


I rolled some in coconut, and then put a blob of chocolate on the top for those who want an even lower calorie sweet.
