Get Creative for V-Day with Handmade Love-Bombs!
All you need is love, right? Holidays can sometimes come with pressure to buy lavish gifts and spend heaps of coin, but you don't need that to show your love! These chocolate love bombs are the perfect way to show those you love how much you care about them, spending your time and energy to create something meaningful from your heart... now that's something money can't buy!
What you'll need:
- 2 Tbsp Connect Foods Organic Cacao Powder
- 12 pitted dates
- 2 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 3/4 cup raw almonds
- 1-2 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- desiccated coconut
Place dates, coconut oil, Connect Foods cacao powder and peanut butter into food processor, and blend until it resembles a paste. Add almonds and pulse until it reaches desired chunkiness. If the mixture is a bit dry, you can either add more coconut oil, or a little bit of maple syrup (depending on the sweetness you would like)
Use a spoon to create tablespoon sized balls, rolling in your palms to create the shape, then roll them in desiccated coconut to coat them. Keep stored in an airtight container in the fridge. They can be stored for up to a week, but I doubt they'll last that long ;)
Give them to one of your sweethearts, mum & dad, friends... Pair them with a handmade card that really shows your love... Guaranteed the combo will be much more appreciated than store-bought gifts!
These are great to do with the kiddos as well!
Happy lovehearts day everyone!
