• 1 Cup Fruit Mix (include sultanas, glace cherries, mixed citrus peel, raisins & currants)
  • 1 Cup Almonds (raw or roasted)
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • Juice of ½ Orange
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • ½ cup Coconut
  • ½ cup soaked Dates (approx. 15)
  • ¼ teaspoon Almond Essence (or vanilla, rum, brandy essence to taste)
  • 50 grams White Chocolate


  1. Soak dates in cup of hot water
  2. In a food processor add the fruit mix, almonds, orange juice, orange zest, cocoa and coconut and blitz until it resembles coarse crumbs
  3. Spoon out the dates from the hot water and add to the food processor and blitz until the mixture begins to come together
  4. Add the almond essence and mix well, taste and see if you wish to add more essence, if not binding enough you can use more orange juice until it is sticky and firm enough to be rolled into balls
  5. Roll into teaspoon sized balls and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  6. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 20 second bursts until completely melted
  7. Drizzle a little over each bliss ball, add a festive topper such as sprinkles, chopped cranberries, or freeze-dried berries before the chocolate sets
