MAKES 20 BALLS

IN­GRE­DI­ENTS

4 tbsp co­conut oil 4 tbsp maple syrup 6 tbsp co­coa pow­der 8 tbsp nut but­ter Pinch of sea salt

To roll

What­ever top­ping you like, from co­coa to des­ic­cated co­conut to pis­ta­chio nuts

METHOD

Melt the co­conut oil in a medium saucepan, then add the maple syrup, co­coa pow­der, nut but­ter and sea salt. Stir to com­bine.

Pour into a wide shal­low dish. The wider the dish, the faster it will cool. Then place in the fridge to set for about an hour. Al­ter­na­tively, you can speed up the process and place the dish in the freezer for 20-30 min­utes.

When the mix­ture has set, use a ta­ble­spoon (and dry hands) to form into 20 2cm balls. If they’re too sticky, put them back in the fridge or freezer to harden a lit­tle more.

Place the co­coa pow­der or co­conut on a plate. Roll each ball in the co­coa or co­conut un­til cov­ered on all sides. Eat im­me­di­ately or store in the fridge.
