Ingredients:

For the filling –

1/4 Cup coconut cream

1 Tablespoon raw organic maple syrup

1/2 Cup raw cashew nuts

1 & 1/3 Cups of desiccated coconut (shredded also works)

2 Tablespoons of coconut oil

For the outside coating –

1 Tablespoon raw organic maple syrup

2 Tablespoons cacao powder

2 Tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 Cup desiccated coconut

NOTE: I actually found I needed slightly more coating ingredients but maybe I coat them too thick!

 

Method:

1 – Place coconut cream, maple syrup, cashews, coconut and coconut oil in a blender or food processor and blend until combined. It will be a paste like consistency.

2 – Roll the mixture into balls and place in the freezer on a lined tray. The mixture should make about 12 – 15 balls.

3 – Make the chocolate coating. Make sure the coconut oil is in it’s liquid state and combine with the cocao powder and maple syrup

4 – Take the balls out of the freezer and if they are hard enough dip them into the mixture and place back on the tray (if not hard enough put them back in the freezer for a few mins) When they have their first coat put them back in the freezer to harden

5 – Take them out and dip them in again to give them another coat – straight after you dip each one in a second time roll it in some desiccated coconut. (I used shredded coconut for this bit but whatever you prefer)

6 – Place them back in the freezer to harden up then eat. You won’t be able to stop at one!
