Choc Mint Bliss Balls

choc mint bliss balls

I was planning on making our much loved Mint Slice Biscuits into a slice as I know many of you have done. I was half way through when a better offer came up. I rolled what I had into balls and headed out the door. When we returned we tasted and we loved. We also really liked the way they looked. There are simpler ways to whip up Choc Mint Bliss Balls but they just don’t have the visual appeal of these delicious little bites. We all really enjoyed our accidental creation and I hope you do too.


Choc Mint Bliss Balls

  • the chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 10 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 2 tbs cacao or cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

the mint 

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbs honey*
  • 2 tbs coconut cream
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  1. Place the chocolate ingredients into your food processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a fine sticky crumb. Use your hands to shape the mixture into three large balls. Place the balls onto a sheet of baking paper. Combine the balls to one and roll between two sheets of baking paper until the mixture is 3 – 5 mm thick. Place in the freezer while you make the mint layer.
  2. Place all of the mint ingredients except for the peppermint extract into your food processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a thick paste. Add the extract. Quickly blend to combine.
  3. Use your hands to spread the mint layer evenly over the chocolate layer.
  4. Cut the mixture into strips and roll it into balls. Place in the fridge to set, I think they are best left overnight.
  5. Enjoy.

*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

    My kids dont like the date flavor…do you have any suggestions for an alternative? Maybe a milder flavor?

    • I have some more date free bliss balls coming up, perhaps make the lemon balls and omit the lemon and add 1 tablespoon cacao or cocoa instead.

  • Whats your favourite mint extract?

    • If you have access to a peppermint oil that would be the best option. I don’t so have been using the natural extract from the supermarket. I figure it is only a minute amount per serve. I hope this helps.

    my chocolate layer was super crumbly – not sure why it didn’t bind properly.

    • I am not sure sorry. If you make them again perhaps try adding a tablespoon of coconut cream to the choc layer. I am sorry the recipe hasn’t worked well for you. I hope you find many more that you enjoy. x

    Just made these and they are already delicious, even before refrigerating. I just adore your recipes Bianca. I think the moment I really connected with your blog was when you mentioned one of your husbands endearing qualities being his acceptance at having nothing prepared for dinner, but three “dessert” options. 🙂 That’s us! Thank you for sharing your stories and recipes x

    Hi Bianca, my daughter is severely allergic to cashews. Can you recommend alternatives???

    • You could use macadamias or even coconut and a tablespoon of almond butter. I hope this helps. x
