Christmas Bliss Balls with Cranberry, Chocolate, Pistachio & Orange


My good friend Nadene (the one who supported me to get into wholefoods actually!) has become quite well known in our neck of the woods.

The reason?

Well, there’s two actually.

The first?

She designs b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l dresses over at Wynsum Wardrobe. Check out the dress-up day I had with her here.

The second?

Bliss balls.

She makes the b-e-s-t bliss balls.

Feast your eyes and your tummy on this Christmas variation!

Nadene says she really only makes these once a year at Christmas time for a special treat. ‘Cos once you start to eat these babies, it’s hard to stop.

The flavour combo is insane.


…And Merry Christmas from Nadene and I!
