Recipe: Brazilian Bliss Balls!

This is a super simpleĀ bliss ball recipe… that’s a cut above your usual dried fruit ‘n’ nut fare! Why? CACAO BUTTER! This not only does this magical ingredient impart a rich chocolately flavour, but it gives these balls a beaut texture, similar to that of a chocolate truffle. Make a double batch & freeze half… or bring them along to your next picnic & be the most popular person in your party. Mmm!

FullSizeRender (25)Time: 15 minutes + refrigeration time

Makes: 10 – 12 balls

What you need:

1 cup cacao powder

1 cup cacao butter

1 cup sulphur-free raisins (I used sun muscat)

1 cup brazil nuts (+ 1/4 cup to roll balls in)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

honey – to taste

pinch good quality salt

What to do:

1/ Set up a double boiler & melt down cacao butter.

2/ Blitz 1/4 cup of the brazil nuts in a food processor, until coarsely chopped. Put aside in a small bowl.

3/ Put the remainingĀ brazil nuts into the food processor & blitz until they resemble fine bread crumbs.

4/ Add the cacao powder, melted cacao butter, raisins, vanilla, honey & salt to the processor & blitz for 30 seconds, or until ingredients are well combined.

5/ Pour the mixture into a bowl. Take a tablespoon or two of mixture into your hands at a time & roll into small balls. If the mixture is too runny, allow it to set slightly in the fridge. Don’t leave it for too long though – otherwise the mixture will be too firm & you won’t be able to roll it!

6/ Coat balls in the 1/4 cup coarsely chopped brazil nuts.

7/ Store in a sealed container in the fridge. Enjoy!
