I am a sucker for all things dark chocolate, I allow myself one piece of dark chocolate a day, enjoyed with my lunch time cuppa. I adore the ALDI brand organic dark chocolate with sea salt, that slight edge of saltiness enhances the dark chocolate and it is divine. This is the chocolate I should have used for this recipe however, on the day I made this, I knew I didn't have enough of my normal chocolate block left so I called into Coles on the way home (ALDI is in the other direction and I was on my bike) and picked up what I thought would be a nice chocolate to go in these Bliss Balls. Well, it was nice, and it does the trick in these healthy little morsels, however as an eating chocolate it was way too sweet for my taste. So, if you like things on the dark, not so sweet, side, take my advise and try and source a block of the ALDI organic dark chocolate with sea salt for this recipe.
|Ingredients for Chocolate and Cashew Bliss Balls. |
I ended up using 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup, as that was all that was left in the bottle and 2 tablespoon of honey.
|To the bowl of a food processor add the Cashews, Rolled Oats and the Cinnamon|
|Blitz until it is a fine meal|
|Now add Chocolate chunks, Maple Syrup or Honey or a combination of both and Vanilla.|
Blitz until it starts to come together into a cohesive dough
|Sticky and cohesive "dough"|
