  • So simple, I am going to give these a go. Been looking for a quick bliss ball recipe.


  • Always looking at different things to put in school lunch box, we made these today unfortunately they tasted that good there are no left overs for the lunch box.


  • Nice one ! No maple syrup needed when it has already dates; that’s just adding sugar


  • Yum! I have done these with prunes instead of dates so I am sure if I make these it will be a hit in the household!


  • A delicious treat anytime to enjoy! Thanks!


  • MMmmm they look delicious. Thank you


  • I’ll have to make these! Much healthier than me saying chocolate all the time!


  • These are always winners in the lunchboxes


  • I love snack like this. It is delicious and easy to make without baking.


  • A lovely recipe, look forward to making them.


  • I made these and everyone loved them.


  • A lot cheaper than buying the ones in the supermarket. Will give these a go.


  • My kids like the commercial bliss balls – these look a lot healthier.


  • Going to have to try these to see if they will pass as rum balls with the kids.


  • Yum! These sound good.
