Bliss balls with a Christmas twist!

Yields15 Servings
Prep Time1 hr 50 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time2 hrs

 1 cup dates
 ½ cup new hemisphere™ Hemp Seed Hulled
  cup cashews, natural and unsalted
  cup almonds, natural and unsalted
  cup cacao powder
 2 tbsp new hemisphere™ Hemp Protein
 2 tbsp cacao butter
 1 tbsp maple syrup
 1 tsp peppermint essence
Decoration
 400 g dark chocolate (min. 70% cacao)
 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
 2 tbsp dried cranberries

1

Cover and soak dates in hot water for 30-60 minutes.

2

Using a food processor, first blend the cashews, almonds, and new hemisphere™ Hemp Seed Hulled. Then add dates, cacao powder, and new hemisphere™ Hemp Protein.

3

Melt the cacao butter and maple syrup together. Add this plus the peppermint essence to the mixture.

4

Place the bliss ball mixture in a glass or stainless steel bowl in the refrigerator for at least an hour (this makes the mixture easy to roll).

5

Taking a teaspoonful of mixture, roll into a ball using your hands. Repeat with remaining mixture. Leave balls at room temperature before dip in chocolate.

6

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or improvise with a small saucepan and glass bowl over simmering water.

7

Dip each bliss ball in melted chocolate by fully immersing using a fork. Tap the fork to remove excess chocolate before placing on a large dinner plate lined with non-stick baking paper. Carefully, top with two pumpkin seeds and a cranberry to create Xmas holly.

8

Place in the refrigerator or freezer to set.
