Almond Tahini Bliss Balls …

almond-tahini-bliss-balls

  These Almond Tahini Bliss Balls are a quick, easy, healthy snack for anyone on the go or perfect for Mum or Dad’s lunchboxes for work.  They do contain almonds so are probably best not sent to school due to potential allergies but are a great after school snack.  Tahini is a deliciously nutty and creamy spread made from sesame seeds and, if you’ve not used it before, you’ll find it in most supermarkets in the Health Food section.  Enjoy!

Pineapple Bliss Balls … Two Versions … A Healthy Snack or a Nut-Free Treat for School …

Pineapple Bliss Balls 001

  This is a simple, yummy recipe but I’ve created two different versions. The first Pineapple Bliss Ball recipe is a healthy version using Almond Meal which would be great as an after school snack but should be avoided in lunchboxes if your school has a “nut-free” policy. The second Pineapple Bliss Ball recipe contains no nuts and is, therefore, a perfect option to send to school in lunchboxes. Both versions of this recipe contain only 4 ingredients meaning it’s quick and easy to make. Enjoy! Recipe 1:   Pineapple Bliss Balls … A Healthy Snack ...   Print … read more

Raspberry Bliss Balls …

Raspberry Bliss Balls 001

  These are a perfect little “after school” snack for hungry kids or ideal for anyone looking for a sweet treat but without the guilt. They also happen to taste just like a Cherry Ripe so that’s an added bonus. These won’t be suitable to send to school in lunchboxes because of the almond meal so do be mindful of that.

Coconut Snowballs … One Recipe … 4 Ways …

Coconut Snowballs

        I love a recipe that’s versatile … a recipe where you can take the basic ingredients and create more than one version of it. This is such a recipe … Coconut Snowballs. Make the basic recipe and dip the balls in white chocolate, take the same recipe and roll the balls in coconut and finally, to create an adult version, add some glace cherries to the original mixture (not all kids will like glace cherries) and then roll in either white chocolate or coconut.

Ginger Balls …

Ginger Balls 001

  If you haven’t already guessed, I love making Balls … such a perfect snack to eat in the afternoon when energy levels are low and just the right size to satisfy those sweet cravings.  I also love making these little balls of goodness around Christmas time because I can make them a couple of weeks early and simply freeze them until needed. This helps me get organised and alleviates my stress levels at this busy time of year. Ball recipes are so versatile too as they can be served on their own, added to a cheese platter or great for lunchboxes (but do be aware that … read more

Jingle Balls …

Jingle Balls 001

  Christmas is just around the corner and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be looking for recipe ideas for the festive season. These are a wonderful chocolate treat that can be made up as a gift for a friend or a teacher or made to be enjoyed at a Christmas function or on Christmas day. Of course, these can be enjoyed any time of the year but to get in the spirit, I’ve added a couple of drops of red and green food colouring to the coconut for rolling to create a healthy, nut-free, guilt-free festive treat.   5.0 from 2 reviews Jingle Balls   Print … read more

Peanut Butter Balls …

Peanut Butter Balls 001

  There is only one word that adequately describes these little guys ... heavenly!!!  You will need a food processor to make these but I can honestly say that, after waiting as many years as I have to own one, it’s seriously worth it.  I rolled this batch of Peanut Butter Balls in coconut, however, in the past I have also coated them in dark chocolate.  The result is a truly decadent treat that allows you to give in to your chocolate urges without consuming an entire block.  These will last in the fridge for up to a week but trust me, they wont last that long.  I had … read more

Rum Balls … the Ideal Gift for Teachers …

Rum Balls 002

  October is on it’s way to being over and before we know it, the kids will be on holidays once again … time certainly flies! So today I thought I’d share my Rum Ball recipe because I often whip up a couple of batches and the kids present them to their teachers at the end of the term, just a little gift to say thank you for a great year. What I usually do is buy a stack of Christmas mugs, bowls and dishes at the Boxing Day sales where you’ll pay as little as 50 cents for these things. Plain coloured cups like the green melamine cup in the photo from the Coles … read more

  If you’re looking for some party food ideas for your child’s next birthday or special celebration, these Chocolate Sparkle Balls are perfect and so easy to make!  For a serving suggestion, I found these cute little Mini Patty Pan Wrappers at Coles.  I love that these balls can be made the day before meaning you have less to do on the day!  I rolled some of the balls in 100’s & 1000’s and some in Choclettes but desiccated coconut works well too.     Chocolate Sparkle Balls …   Print Prep time 15 mins Total time 15 mins   … read more

Almond and Fig Balls …

Almond and Fig Balls 001

I’ve already shared a number of different recipes for Bliss Balls and here is yet another variety to add to your collection. I haven’t experimented with, or tried, Figs in the past so I was really keen to create a recipe that used them.  For this recipe I used dried figs, purchased at Woolworths, and the result was a beautiful, sweet snack that everyone enjoyed.  These are ideal for lunchboxes as well but do remember to check your schools "Nut Policy" as these contain ground almonds.

Apricot Bliss Balls …

Apricot Bliss Balls 001

After achieving success with my Chocolate Bliss Balls, I was keen to produce an apricot version to give my family a bit of variety.  I searched the internet but couldn’t find exactly the right recipe so I’ve created my own.  This version still uses a lot of the common ingredients I noticed in the other recipes but without the sweetened condensed milk that most other recipes called for.  My goal was to create an apricot ball that was gluten free and dairy free while still being quite healthy.  Once again, you will need a food processor for this recipe so, if you don’t … read more
