1. I normally dust my bliss balls in cacao powder but they are also delicious rolled in ground almonds. Just add an extra 1/2 cup of almonds when you’re blitzing them at the start then reserve it before add the dates and cacao.
2. These bliss balls are delicious as is but you can also experiment by adding other flavours such as peppermint or vanilla extract, espresso powder or substitute other nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts or pecans.
3. If you are feeling super lazy then you can always substitute the whole almonds for almond meal/flour but I do think it tastes better if you process the almonds yourself.
4. Make sure you use the juicy, fresh Medjool dates that are found in the fresh fruit and vegetable section of the supermarket. They are more expensive than the dried ones in the baking aisle but a little goes a long way and the others are far too dry for this recipe.
