Easter is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing... chocolate! Unfortunately our fave Easter treats are usually loaded with sugar and other nasties which can leave you feeling tired and sluggish.
Cue this indulgent, chocolatey and GUILT-FREE chocolate recipe that'll have you living your best life in no time!
Our Hot Chocolate Balls have sweet, fizzy raspberry and vanilla jellies hiding inside. Drop one into a sugar-free hot choccie for an Easter treat that oozes right before your eyes!
This recipe is a total triple threat: a great activity to do with the kids these school holidays that's absolutely delicious AND totally guilt free!
Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate’s higher cacao content means that it's packed full of disease-fighting antioxidants, while its flavonoids (a compound found in fruit and veggies) may help boost heart health by lowering blood pressure. Our fave is Bennetto, which is also organic and sustainable! Who knew you could save the earth by eating chocolate!
Nexba Creaming Soda: Traditional soft drinks are usually packed full of sugar, which is straight up not good for you. That's why we decided to shake things up by making the fizzy drinks you know and love, just without any of the nasty sugar or artificial ingredients! Pick up a bottle (or three!) from Coles or Woolworths.
Prep time 3.5hrs Cook time 10min Serves 6
2 tbsp Gelatin (we love Locako) or use agar agar to make it vegan
¼ cup Rice Malt Syrup (we love Pure Harvest)
¼ cup Cream or use coconut cream to make it vegan
400g Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces (we love Bennetto)
Optional: 2 tbsp sugar-free Hot Chocolate Powder (we love Locako)
Milk of your choice
You'll also need:
6 eggs (or something of similar shape) to use as moulds
Cling Wrap (we love Biogone - it's compostable!)
To serve, simply drop the chocolate ball into warmed milk (or homemade hot chocolate for extra indulgence!) and allow the ball to melt open, revealing its fizzy raspberry inside!
