Ingredients
  

  • 200 g (about 10) Medjool dates seeds removed
  • 1 cup macadamias
  • 1/4 cup macadamias extra, for decorating
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut toasted
  • 150 g dark chocolate melted

Instructions
 

  • Place the dates, 1 cup of macadamias, cranberries and cacao in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth and rolls together to form a ball. Roll heaped tablespoons of the mixture into individual balls shaped like eggs and refrigerate until cold.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the ¼ cup of macadamias in a food processor and process until coarsely chopped. Spread on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool and place into a small bowl. Place the toasted coconut in another small bowl alongside the bowl of macadamias. Place the melted chocolate in a third small bowl. 
  • Dip the bottom of each bliss ball egg in chocolate and then either the macadamias or shredded coconut. Repeat with all the eggs. Refrigerate until ready to serve or deliver.
