So, bliss balls, they are so fun. My kids love them and I love the fact that they give bite sized satisfaction. But, what you guys have been asking for is a no desiccated coconut version! To take them to school, they also need to be nut free. So here is my take on nut free chocolate bliss balls. I’ve used the last of my neverending supply of weetbix to make these yummy, easy and chocolatey!
Gosh, I’m not going to be convinced into getting weetbix again. I’ve used them in lemon crunch slice and these yummy quick and easy biscuits and now these bliss balls to finish them off. It has been a test of my ingenuity and ability to make stuff magically turn into something else to use up the whole box. Luckily they basically never go stale…
I know bliss balls aren’t the healthiest of things- they are still high in sugar- thanks dates! But they are a good way to get extra fibre into a recipe. And I’ll have you know: they taste delicious. With some chia seeds in there we’re also getting some Omega 3, so that’s got to count for something.
I’ve glazed these with a white chocolate glaze that adds to their prettiness and makes them just a little more special. But you can leave that off, replace with desiccated coconut if you want to roll them or even a dusting of cacao.
Don’t think these are just for the kids either. I think they pretty much pass as truffles if you don’t call them bliss balls! Pop one on the saucer of your coffee and you’ll be immediately transported to a place where you drink coffee in peace. LOL. What am I saying? They aren’t miracle balls. Just nut free chocolate bliss balls. If you don’t mind coconut, you can also check out these bliss balls.
