Christmas Pudding Bliss Balls

These are particularly cute and make a wonderful gift, but they require a little TLC to make. I’ll be honest – they’re fiddly. Don’t start making them late on Christmas Eve unless you’re prepared to still be covered in white chocolate when reindeer hooves thunder across your roof.

  • Prep: 1 hr
  • Yields: 20 - 30 bliss balls


Bliss Balls

1 cup raw almonds

1 cup mixed dried fruit, chopped (e.g., apricots, raisins, currants, cranberries)

1 tbsp (heaped) candied citrus peel

1 1/2 tsp mixed spice

1/2 orange, juiced

1 1/2 tbsp brandy or drambuie (optional)

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder

1/2 cup fresh dates, pitted

1 tsp vanilla extract

Icing and Garnish

100 g white chocolate

Dash of turmeric

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

2 tbsp cranberries or goji berries, chopped


These aren’t 100% plant-based because of the white chocolate – but if you wanted to make them raw and dairy-free, you could top with a small amount of cashew cream.
