Continuing on the bliss ball theme………. I give you choc mint bliss balls!
Choc mint ice cream is one of my boys favourites so it made sense to have a go at a choc mint ball!
For all of my baking I use a Dutch cocoa it has a stronger flavour and darker colour and the pistachios as for a minty green “chip”, cashews work just as well!
Makes 22-24 balls.
350g dates, stoned
2 tablespoons coconut oil
75g raw, shelled pistachio nuts
50g ground almonds
2 tablespoons cocoa podwer
1 teaspoon peppermint essence
Check the dates are properly stoned before you do anything, I have been caught out by a stray stone before!
Process the dates and coconut oil until the dates are chopped into smaller pieces.
Add the pistachio nuts, almond meal and peppermint essence and process, using the pulse button, until the mix begins to come together.
Scoop out and roll into small balls.
Keep in the fridge.
