Equipment

  • hand mixer
  • Bowls
  • Mixing spoon
  • Baking sheet or tray lined with parchment paper
  • Toothpicks or wooden skewers

Ingredients

Filling

  • 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil room temperature or softened slightly if hardened
  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp pure mint or almond extract completely optional, we didn't use it
  • 1/4 tsp red food colouring (optional) you might adjust the quantity based on the colour strength you want
  • 1/4 tsp green food colouring (optional) you might adjust the quantity based on the colour strength you want

Chocolate Coating

Instructions

  • In a bowl, use mixer to blend cream cheese, butter, and coconut oil until smooth (about 1–2minutes)
  • Add almond flour, sweetener and flavoured extract (optional) and mix using a spoon until a soft dough forms.
  • Split the dough in half and place each half in a separate bowl. Add the green food colouring to one and the red into the other.
  • Mix the colouring to the dough, and chill for about 20 minutes.
  • Take a small piece of red dough and a small piece of green and gently roll them together in your hands to form a soft ball.
  • Continue making the balls with all the dough. Place the balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or tray.
  • Freeze the dough balls for about 30 minutes.
  • For the coating, mix chopped Dark Ross Chocolates bars and coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave in 30 seconds increments until melted. Stir until smooth.
  • Dip each dough ball gently in the chocolate mixture using a spoon to coat. We used wooden skewers (or toothpicks) to hold the dough balls.
  • Place the dipped dough balls back on the parchment lined tray; (optional) immediately sprinkle edible glitter or sprinkles on top of each one (you want to do this before the chocolate sets).
  • Once all of the dough balls are coated, place them back in the freezer for at least an hour before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container or large plastic bag in the fridge or freezer.
  • Enjoy!
