Bliss Balls.

Quick to make, delicious to eat and virtually guilt free. I haven’t made a batch of these babies in a while. So today  I pulled out the food processor threw in all the bits and pushed go. I think I forgot how simple it is.

I whipped up two entirely different batches of bliss balls for your reading, and my eating pleasure.


This first recipe comes from my friend Helen. Helen, an old work pal of Jai’s, delivered a jar of these treats to our front door a day or two after we came home from the hospital with Story. It was the most thoughtful gesture and such a delicious gift. She, and these delicious balls, have had a special place in my heart ever since.

I believe that the original recipe came from  The Petite Kitchen but my ad-hoc attitude to baking has led to a bit of recipe evolution.
