These Cherry Chocolate Bliss Bombs really are bliss!
As Valentines Day is coming up, I thought I would make some lovely treats to share with your loved one!
You can opt out of the chocolate coating and just leave them as is after you blend the cherry bliss bomb ingredients. Maybe coat them with desiccated coconut and let set in the freezer! So easy! But if you want to take it to the next level, double coat them in chocolate, as I have done!
Next time I make these, I think I'll tone down the sunflower seeds and up the coconut and cherries! I feel this mixture is just a tad too sunflower seedy.
Cherries are just such an awesome fruit - as well as tasting great, they contain healthy antioxidants and can help at reducing muscle pain (and belly fat apparently!).
Please share this post with cherry lovers!
Step 1: Ingredients
Things you will need:
For the Cherry Bombs:
1 cup of Sunflower Seed
1/2 a cup of Coconut
3 Medjool Dates
A pinch of salt
1 cup of Fresh Cherries
A sprinkle of Ground Vanilla
1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
For the Chocolate Coating:
1/3 of Coconut Oil
1/3 of Maple
1 Tbsp of Cacao Powder
1/2 a cup of Desiccated Coconut
Step 2: For the Cherry Bombs
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until well combined and then form into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 3: For the Chocolate Coating
If the coconut oil isn't melted, melt it and add the maple syrup and cacao powder. Mix until well combined and smooth. Remove the cherry bombs from the freezer and get a toothpick to dip them one by one in the chocolate sauce, coating all edges. Then place in the freezer for a few minutes to set. You should have lots of sauce left, so give them another coating, then cover with coconut and leave to set in the freezer. Enjoy!
