I made these raw coconut cacao surprise bites a long time ago on my instagram account (see here) before my blog came along and thought it was about time to add the recipe over here. I took a break from making sweets last year as I couldn’t find all the ingredients in Vietnam and with all the tropical fruit available I didn’t feel any urge to make many treats. Since I’m back in Sydney for a visit I thought it was nice for the kids to enjoy these raw cacao surprise bites again. You only need five ingredients to make this delicious nut free treat which go well in school lunch packs too.
these little balls of delicousness have a raw cacao surprise inside that gives it a wonderful crunch
I have also filled them with goji berries or anything else you like. If you are short on time, you can just press the ingredients into a glass dish and chop them into pieces (see my sweet and salty coco cacao bites recipe here).
