Chocolate Bliss Balls

If you would prefer to lure yourself away from the chocolate aisle at the supermarket, do yourself a favour and whip up these chocolate bliss balls. Not only are there only 5 ingredients, but you can also choose your own adventure, sorry flavour, and keep your snacks interesting. 

A note on the choose your own flavour bit.  All this takes is 10-15 drops of pure food grade essential oils and you've created a taste sensation. I love peppermint or wild orange, but what about cinnamon and tangerine, or ginger with orange and cinnamon, or lime, lavender or rosemary - oooo fancy! Just make sure you are only using pure essentials oils, ok? That bit is very important, not all oils are created equal. 

Chocolate Bliss Balls

2.5 cups of raw nuts (brazil, cashews, walnuts, almonds etc)
16 pitted medjool dates
2/3 cup raw cacao
1 heaped tablespoon coconut oil
10-15 drops of doTERRA essential oil (see above options)
Desiccated coconut for rolling

Blend in a food processor until you reach desired consistency. Roll into balls and into coconut, if you so wish. Pop into the fridge or freezer in an airtight container and eat within a couple of weeks (the balls can dry out a little if left too long).
