Chocolate Fudge Bliss Balls


Hot cross buns and chocolate are probably the two most common foods that people enjoy over Easter.

Do you agree?

So, for this Easter, I decided to make two different bliss balls recipes that I believe represent these two popular foods. 

My Chocolate Fudge Bliss Balls are raw, healthy and only made of 5 ingredients (6 if you include the optional sweetener). They are also nut, dairy, gluten and refined sugar free! 

If you are looking for a easy healthy chocolate fix to make over Easter, then these bliss balls are for you. I feel that they are sweet enough, sweetened only by the dates, so I included the maple syrup (or rice malt syrup) as optional only.

My other bliss ball recipe is my interpretation of the flavour of hot cross buns. You can check out my Easter Bliss Balls recipe here.

Happy Easter
