Choc-almond and rosewater bliss balls
Valentine’s Day. I’m not all that into it. I’d rather have flowers on a random day of the week than over-priced roses on a day that we’re told they should be given.
For the extortionate price imagine what sort of beautiful bunch you could get on a random Tuesday? Yes, ok so it kind of comes down to the fact that I like getting a lot for my (Will’s in this case) money.
Try this nut free apricot bliss balls.
Chocolate? Oh I’ll take that any day of the week too. But what about roses and chocolate combined? Combined in a delicious, rich and smooth, sweet ball. Edible ball. Ball you eat. Bliss ball.
Hmm, how can I put it so it doesn’t sound so risqué when you’re talking balls and Valentine’s Day? Protein ball? Nope still got a hint of it. What about raw truffles? There we go – chocolate, almond and rosewater raw truffles.
That’s what this post is about. I wish I’d thought of that before I titled the photo. Oh well, it might attract some people who wouldn’t usually be into a raw chocolate, almond and rosewater truffles right? If you really want to go all out though, I suggest making a tower of them to present to your love.
You will need to purchase some of the aforementioned extortionate roses or give your beloved a voucher for a Valentine’s treat the following day and buy them when they’re on sale? Is that really cheap? Anyway, you will need:
- roses or some other form of pretty flowers
- a piece of cardboard rolled into a cone roughly 12cm (5”) and
- at least two batches of raw truffles
- toothpicks – I cheated and stuck a lot of toothpicks in to hold them all in place

Place the cone on a serving tray/platter/plate then start piling up the balls and inserting toothpicks wherever you need to to keep the balls in place. Snip the roses off the stems leaving a little bit in place to insert then decorate the tower, placing them in all the gaps.
To keep the very top ball in place, stick a toothpick in it and then poke it through the top.
Lots of healthy bliss balls recipe here.
Present to your beloved and watch them feel loved. Enjoy!
