When you're craving something sweet, but are trying to be super-duper good, then a bliss ball is the answer! These Double Chocolate Brownie Bliss Balls are a chocoholics answer to a guilt-free treat. These bliss balls can be whipped up in no time at all in the Thermomix... and they'll disappear just as quickly!
So how are these little babies double chocolate (without actually having any chocolate in them?!). Well the cacao powder gives the balls a beautiful chocolate brownie flavours and the cacao nibs add the most delicious chocolate crunch.
These make a fantastic mid afternoon pick-me-up! Or they're a great alternative to that late night tub of ice-cream (although let's not diss ice-cream... it's one of the best inventions ever - and late night ice-cream is pretty darn awesome!). BUT these are certainly a much healthier alternative.
