I have been planning on making and re-photographing my Nut Free Caramel Fudge as the photo is one of my early ones, and I had absolutely no idea about photography and food styling back then. However, I decided to make the recipe into bliss balls instead, so these Nut Free Caramel Fudge Bliss Balls were born.
These are super easy to make and you can adjust the sweetener (either raw honey, pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup) to suit your preferences. I have also added in salt as an optional extra, if you wanted to make them into Salted Caramel Fudge Bliss Balls.
As well as being nut free, these bliss balls are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, making them perfect for children's lunchbox. They are also suitable for both vegan and paleo lifestyles.

Nut Free Caramel Fudge Bliss Balls
- 200 grams medjool dates
- 250 grams tahini
- 1-3 tablespoons raw honey (or rice malt syrup or pure maple syrup)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt (optional to make them Salted Caramel Fudge Bliss Balls)
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup desiccated (or shredded coconut), for rolling
Add all the ingredients (except the coconut) to a high speed blender (or food processor) and process until well combined and the mixture sticks together. Roll the mixture into small balls and coat with the coconut. Place on a baking tray, lined with baking paper and place in the refrigerator to set.
