Cacao Date Chocolate Balls

This is what we do… cacao balls
  • Melt 65g of Organic Cacao butter buttons (sourced from aldi, however you can try organic & health stores)
  • Add 1heaped tsp manuka honey
  • 5 pitted organic dates
  • 65g organic cacao powder
  • 1 heaped Tbsp coconut oil
  • For flavouring we added… 3 drops of Peppermint Young Living* Essential OilPeppermint Young Living Oil

We used the glorious thermomix! melting the cacao button on 55° for approx. 2mins, then adding the rest of ingredients, initially on Speed 6 until dates blitzed, then reduce to speed 3 for approx. 20secs.  This would be easily done on the stove top using a low heat to melt the cacao butter, then add the rest and blitz it with a whizz stick.  Remove from heat then…

Roll into 2cm round balls & keep in the fridge or freezer depending on when you want to eat them.  Ours didn’t last very long, so storing in the fridge was the way to go.

** Please note Australian standards for using essential oils.  We only use Young Living essential oils due to their pure & heart felt nature containing whole plant properties (therapeutic grade essential oil) – Ask Mandy for a demonstration to experience these magical products for yourself…
