WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CINNAMON BLISS BALLS
You need the following ingredients to make these bliss balls (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):
- Nuts – use any mix of nuts of your choice, such as almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, or cashews.
- Cocoa powder – Use good quality natural cocoa powder.
- Cinnamon – Adds warm depth of flavor. I recommend using Ravaneō N°22 Ceylon Cinnamon.
- Salt – balances the sweetness. I recommend using Ravaneō N°15 Flower of Salt.
- Dates – Use soft pitted dates. If the dates are not soft and sticky, soak them in hot water for about 10 minutes, then drain them well.
- For coating: I used cocoa powder, ground pistachios, desiccated coconut.
Equipment you need:
- High-speed blender or food processor
- Kitchen scale (optional) – I like to use a kitchen scale to make sure the bliss balls are all even, but you can skip this step.
HOW TO MAKE THE HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CINNAMON BLISS BALLS
You will find the instructions and ingredients list in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
1. Step: Blend nuts, cocoa powder, and cinnamon
To the food processor or high-speed blender, add nuts, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Blend on medium or pulse until finely ground.
2. Step: Mix in dates
Next, add in soft dates and blend for about 30 seconds or until it all combines and the mixture sticks together.
3. Step: Make bliss balls
Roll out 20 even balls from the mixture (use kitchen scale for more accuracy – 1 ball = about 15g/0,5 oz). Then roll each ball into the desiccated coconut or cocoa powder or ground pistachios to coat.
Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in the fridge to firm up.

Great snack and very easy to make. Not too sweet. It was very sticky in my blender, might try the food processor next time.
