These Cashew Cranberry Bliss Balls make my heart so happy! Long gone are the days where I enjoy eating white chocolate slabs with smarties inside…what can I say? No regrets.
However, I do sometimes find myself longing for that sweet and creamy combo that satisfies all my sweet dreams. And this is why I am thrilled to share this much healthier version with you. Did I mention they come together in a flash in your food processor?
The most ‘tedious’ part of this recipe is rolling the little balls, which is not a problem for me or my little humans – I find it extremely therapeutic and it is a glorious fine motor skills exercise for the boys. These do need a bit of squishing versus rolling. So, you might need to be a bit more generous with your encouragement, mom. 😉
However, if the idea of rolling little bite-size balls makes you want to scroll back to Instagram, know that you can alternatively push the entire mixture down into a lined tin. Refrigerate and chop into bite size squares (or even bars) when they have firmed up a bit. They keep best in the fridge, but will hold their shape in a structured container kept in a cool place.
Enough already Suzanne! Let’s get to it.
Cashew Cranberry Bliss Balls
Makes 20 (this will depend on how much of the batter you and your little ones consume during the rolling session)
- Add the roasted cashews to the food processor and blitz until you reach a coarse crumble consistency.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blitz on high until the mixture starts to clump. Be sure to check that all the macadamia nut butter has been scooped up from the bottom and incorporated into the mixture.
- Scoop teaspoon fulls of the mixture into your hand and roll and press it into a ball.
- Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
I’m pretty confident a few of you are going to want to make these at home. So, PLEASE tag me on Facebook or Instagram when you give them a go! Let me know if they taste like the white chocolate I miss (or is it just me?)
