No Bake Cocoa Candy Cane Balls

I found this recipe on the web years ago and printed it off without a reference to who created this treat- sorry. I had put off making it because I didn’t know if they would taste that great – but to my surprise they are lovely – I love the crunch from the cocoa nibs.

These treats are made with real foods which puts them on your “nice” and not “naughty” list!

Peppermint essential oil can make a headache go away and unclogs a stuffy nose – but in this case it adds a wonderful flavor to these balls.

Pictured here are – Cocoa Candy Cane Balls, Chocolate Almond Bliss Balls, Raw Raspberry Cream Filled Chocolates – my clients loved them all!!

  • ½ cup mashed overripe bananas
  • ½ cup organic peanut butter (if new jar pour off the oil as it will make them runny)
    ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil
  • ½ cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raw organic cocoa nibs

Mix everything except cocoa nibs in a blender or food processor. Add in Cocoa nibs and stir until mixed in. Make balls – whatever size you would like and freeze for a couple hours!

Let me know how you like them and the other treats!
