Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients (except the coating) into a blender and blitz until it’s incorporated and mushy.
  2. Take small amounts of the mixture (about 1 TBSP) and roll into balls
  3. If using desiccated coconut to coat, put the coconut into a small bowl and roll each ball of mixture in it, until its got a fine coating of coconut.
  4. Place completed balls on to a plate and place in the freezer for 20 minutes or into the fridge for 30-40 minutes (until they firm up).
  5. If your using chocolate to coat the balls, place completed balls onto a plate and place in the freezer or fridge until you have melted the chocolate.
  6. You can melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a saucepan of boiling water or in the microwave. If going for the microwave option – keep an eye on it, so that it doesn’t burn.
  7. Once the chocolate has melted take the balls from the fridge/ freezer and carefully (I used two cocktail sticks) roll the balls to coat them in chocolate. Place the coated balls back on the plate and once all are coated return to the fridge or freezer to chill.
  8. Once the chocolate has set and the balls have firmed up a bit, they are ready to eat. They will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  9. Enjoy!!!
