What you’ll need:
- 6 dates
- 2 tbs runny honey
- 4 nairns gluten free chocolate oat biscuits
- handful of cashew nuts
- 1tbs peanut butter (we like Pic's Smooth for this)
- 50g dark chocolate (we use Lindt Dark Orange for this)
Best Balls Ever! But be warned, they won't last long – they taste like a Malteser/M&M Combo. Pheebs loved these and enjoyed rolling the balls. Aim for them to be bite-sized.
How to make:
Blend the nuts in a food processor or nutri-bullet until they resemble crumbs. Then add the dates and biscuits and blend again.
Add the honey and peanut butter and blitz again. Tip the mixture into a bowl. It should resemble a soft biscuit like consistency.
Roll the mixture into balls - these should be a little bigger than a Malteser shaped ball and set aside. You could get the kids to do this job!
Place a mixing bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and add the chocolate pieces. Stir occasionally until melted.
Once melted, remove the bowl of chocolate from the pan and add the balls into the chocolate a few at a time. Set aside once fully coated.
Place the coated balls on a tray and leave in the fridge for a couple of hours to set - then enjoy!
The fun part:
You can go as nuts as you like with these balls. But keeping them simple is the key. Try dark chocolate mint instead of chocolate orange for a coating. Or roll in coconut for some extra texture.
