Carob, Chocolate & Cashew Bliss Bombs
After Rachel’s amazing Bliss Balls recipe I was inspired to name this similarly, but these bliss bombs (or bliss blobs if you like) are quite different, in fact they are quite naughty compared to much of the food we feature on the website! They’re just a little bit sticky, the way we know you like it – I wanted to use up some dairy-free dark chocolate that typically doesn’t have much taste on its own, so here goes.
Ingredients (all organic if you can!):
About 300g dark chocolate
80g cashew nuts
1 tbsp carob syrup
1 tsp roast carob powder
Starting with your broken up chocolate pieces and cashew nuts, put everything
into your bain marie (double boiler) and as in the video above, just stir and break up the lumps. When it’s all melted, spoon onto greaseproof paper according to what size you want them A tablespoon is good as these are extremely moorish, although a teaspoon would be fine too. Place in the fridge for an hour.
When they’ve cooled down you should be able to get a sharp knife underneath them to arrange on a plate.
Sprinkle with the coconut and place a piece of carob nibble in the top, giving the whole experience a fantastic extra bit of crunch.
Dust with more carob powder and add some red fruit, they would go well with strawberries as well as raspberries or even fresh cherries. I’ve also added some blueberries.
You can serve with cream if you wish and honey into the main mix can improve the sweetness if you’re partial.
You could also add dates or crystallised ginger to the mix… what about a roast coffee bean inside? Experiment!
mouth-watering to share?
