Course Snack


  • 8 fresh dates pitted and roughly chopped (approx. 180g)
  • 1/2 cup macadamias plus 4 extra, cut into fangs
  • 1/4 cup cranberries roughly chopped plus 1 tablespoon finely chopped pieces for eyes and red back spot
  • 2 1/2 meters liquorice string cut into approximately 4cm pieces for legs
  • Store-bought white fairy floss to serve (optional)


  • Place the dates, macadamias and cranberries in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture combines so that when pressed together it forms a ball.
  • Roll the mixture into 8 balls and 8 smaller balls. Press each small ball onto a big ball by pressing firmly together.
  • Use the chopped macadamias to create fangs and press in the chopped cranberries for eyes and a red back.
  • Push each liquorice length into the bliss ball body to create legs. Serve on a platter with white fairy floss for a web, if desired.
