Almost white chocolate balls

When I ate traditional chocolate I loved white chocolate. Those who are into their chocolate will tell you that white chocolate isn’t even chocolate! Regardless I loved it and these lovely little treats taste very close to the white chocolate flavour.

The recipe uses cocoa butter which is the key ingredient in white chocolate (along with sugar of course!).

The almost white chocolate balls are easy to make – another recipe where you can just add all the ingredients to the food processor and blitz them.

  • ⅓ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  3. Place in an airtight container in the fridge and let set for 2 hours.
