Choc Hazel Bliss Balls


Choc-Hazel Bliss Balls

Now I am a bit of a bliss ball addict, but these are something really, really extra special. After I made up this variation, I had to get everyone to come running and try them and officially declare me a genius! Yes, they are that good. Think nutella, think ferrero rocher but healthy!!


Choc-Hazel Bliss Balls

Okay so this is what you need:

1 cup pitted sulphur free dates
2 tablespoons Crio Bru (I used the new flavour, Maracaibo)
2 teaspoons Heilala Vanilla Bean paste (secret ingredient)
1 cup hazelnuts, skin removed


Okay, so this is how you do it:

Process the dates, crio bru, cacao and vanilla until well combined in a food processor or thermomix.
Add hazelnuts and pulse or turbo until they are finely chopped.
Use damp hands and roll them into balls.
Store in the fridge or freezer.


Decadent, but still healthy!

    I have everything ready to go, bar the vanilla bean paste. Can you recommend a substitute

    Hi there can you recommend a substitute for Crio Bru please?

    • 3-19-2014

      Hi Gemma, you could just leave it out – I can’t think of a good substitute – it’s really a different sort of product! :)

      Hi Gemma,
      Crio Bru is fantastic, however in this recipe I think cacao nibs would be a good substitute to try…

    I thought I was having de-ja-vu. Now I realise it’s the universe telling me to make this bliss ball already!!

    Hi there, just wanted to check with you about the crio bru. Do you brew it first then add it or just add the powder?

    How many balls does this recipe make?
    And any idea how much the ingredients cost for one batch? :)
    Looks ridiculously yum!

      Depends on how big you roll them! Sorry, I don’t remember how many it made. Ingredients cost vary so much – I usually buy my stuff in bulk through the co-op so I am not sure of a supermarket price. :)
