Tricky Bonbon Chocolates with No Added Sugar (25 Balls)

Step by step

  • Soak the slices of figs in orange juice for 24 hours. If the orange juice is not enough to cover the figs, add a little water.
  • Drain the figs and place them in your Beko blender. Reserve the liquid for later use.
  • Add the almonds, salt and cocoa powder and blend with the figs until you get a paste that is smooth but thick enough to shape. If necessary, add a little of the orange juice, but keep the texture of the paste in mind. Refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Once the paste has thickened, model it into ball shapes with your hands and coat the bonbons with your choice of the following: grated coconut, chopped nuts, seeds, cocoa powder with cinnamon or dried fruit chips.
  • You can keep these chocolate balls in the fridge for a few days.

Ingredients

  • 200g dry figs
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 100g almonds
  • 2-3 tablespoons cocoa powder (with no sugar)
  • A pinch of salt
  • To coat: grated coconut, cocoa powder and cinnamon, sesame, chopped pistachios, fruit chips.

Tips

  • These chocolate balls are loaded with magnesium from the figs, almonds and cocoa powder. They are full of fibre, too. Both nutrients are crucial for digestion and can help prevent future health problems.
