Dipped Chocolate Cashew Bliss Balls

When I first began making these, I was originally going for a healthier version of a Snickers bar. I gave one to my dad and asked, “What does this remind you of?” He said a donut hole so my mission was not completely accomplished, however I am happy to hear this healthier dessert option can remind you of eating a donut! These bliss balls are fill with just 6 ingredients and so tasty! I promise even the little ones will like them too!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1/2 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, at least 60% cacao (the higher the better)
  • Coarse sea salt

 

Directions:

  1. Soak dates in warm water for 5 minutes.
  2. Add cashews to a food processor and chop. I like bigger chunks, so I did this for about 8-10 seconds.
  3. Place chopped cashews into a bowl and set aside.
  4. Add soaked dates, almond butter, and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to food processor and blend until fully combined. It should look like a paste consistency.
  5. Add cashews back into the food processor and blend with the “paste” until everything is fully combined.
  6. Form “dough” into balls. I like using a cookie dough drop spoon (less messy and so much easier!) however if you do not have one, use your hands to roll into balls. I was able to make 10 balls.
  7. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for about 1 minute. Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the chocolate and mix well with a spoon.
  8. Dip each ball half way into the chocolate and place onto a plate with parchment paper.
  9. Once each one has been dipped into the chocolate, sprinkle some sea salt onto each one.
  10. Place into the fridge for an hour or so or until the chocolate has hardened.
  11. Keep these stored in the fridge for about a week.
  12. Enjoy! 🙂
