View Full Version : Aleesha's fudge balls
11-26-2009, 04:14 PM
I created a little something for myself today. It's not too sweet, which I like.
I started with these ingredients:
1 cup dates
1 cup almond butter
1/2 c carob powder
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup cacao nibs
In a food processor, I blended the dates into a smooth paste. I added a T of water.
Then I added almond butter and carob powder.
Remove from food processor.
Add almonds into your food processor and grind till fine, add back in all the other ingredients and blend till it becomes a ball.
I put it in bowl and formed into balls.
Then I popped them into the freezer for later!

Okay - begging for pics - where are they? Wanna see please!
11-27-2009, 10:44 AM
I took a pic! This is about 1/2 of what was made with the recipe.

Ahh! That's the ticket. Thank you. They look very good.
I'm out of almonds come to find out, but have other nuts (cahsews, pecan, walnuts, or apricot pits) to sub in. I do have almond butter though.
11-27-2009, 11:15 AM
I would think they'd be great with any nut you use. I'm planning on doing pecans next time as my hubby is crazy about pecans.

as you can all see by my pic, i don't roll them into nice smooth balls. i must warn you though... these babies stick to your hands big time so add an extra 5 minutes, after you are done, to scrape your fingers with your teeth. ;)

Might be easier to dry grind the almonds first, then remove and do the date paste etc....
11-27-2009, 05:14 PM
well i didn't realize i was going to need the almonds in there. it was quite oily and i wanted something to kinda absorb that oil a bit... hence the ground almonds.
but yup, you can do it however you wish.

Yum, I love fudge balls! I'll be making these, minus the nibs for a bit.
Thanks for sharing the recipe AND the picture! :D
11-27-2009, 07:58 PM
I think I'll try adding some soaked goji berries next time!
11-27-2009, 08:39 PM
^Ooh, sounds good. My oldest son would LOVE that.

As Tony the tiger says, "They're GREAT!"
I deviated a little and used walnuts, added a little cinnamon, the pulp and seeds of 6 figs, and 1/4 cup hemp seeds. I began stuffing kalamata crown figs but they were too dry to get the seeds removed without destroying the skins so I stopped at 6 of them. Formed balls with the rest. I only allowed myself one since I am doing the green smoothie movement for the weekend.

mmmmm I love walnuts but hubby is allergic to them so we don't have any in the house.
enjoy your green smoothies!!!

Thanks for the pics -- i guess begging does work! They look delicious - gonna make some for myself and take some to my Dad - he loves raw sweets.
11-28-2009, 01:15 PM
bribery works even better LOL
11-28-2009, 09:05 PM
haha, no wonder you protect your fudge balls! They look so yummy!!
