Cinnamon-Almond Balls

Who already started to bake Christmas cookies? The first cookie jars at home are filled with chocolate-walnut brownies, nougat croissants and Christmas Stollen. These are the classics alongside shortbread, gingerbread and Spekulatius. But why not try some lesser known alternatives? On Pinterest, I discovered a recipe for cinnamon balls and was so enthusiastic about the simple preparation and few ingredients that I directly baked my own cinnamon-almond balls. Those of you who like energy balls and cinnamon will love these delicious and healthy cinnamon-almond balls! The preparation takes max. 10 minutes plus 10 minutes baking time in the oven. It is especially nice to sprinkle the baked cinnamon-almond balls with icing sugar. If you don’t like icing sugar, you can also roll the balls in grated coconut.

Warm Cinnamon-Almond Balls are the best!

VANILLA CACAO BLISS BALLS

While traveling through Australia, I discovered my love for bliss balls again. These balls are so energy-rich and the perfect grab-and-go snack all day long. Several Australian supermarkets have bliss balls on their stocklist with different flavors. My absolute favorite ones were Carman’s Almond, Super Seed & Vanilla Bliss Balls. I really loved the combination of vanilla and the slightly sweet taste of the dates mixture. Back home I tried my own version of bliss balls and I am super happy with the result: Vanilla Cacao Bliss Balls with crunchy almond chunks and nuts. Preparation takes literally just 10 minutes. You only need a good food processor to crush the almonds, dates and nuts!

CHOCOLATE CARAMEL SLICES

There is a little story behind this blog post. Actually, when I started blogging, I just took pictures of my food to post them on Instagram. Sometimes it happened that I forgot to write down the recipe itself. This recipe for the chocolate caramel slices was one of my first recipes I ever created by myself. Unfortunately, I did not write down the correct measurements of the chocolate caramel slices, so I could never publish the recipe. Therefore, I am more than excited to finally share my newest version of this recipe.

Make chocolate caramel slices for your tea party!

As you might already know, I love tea time a lot. Especially, I like to enjoy it with a little cookie or a piece of cake. Since I had so many leftovers in the kitchen such as half a package of dates or a few tablespoons of peanut butter, I started to do these old chocolate caramel slices. Of course, this time I immediately wrote down all the measurements and the instructions. I hope you like these chocolate fudge slices as much as I do! Personally, I like them a lot if they are still a bit cold from the freezer.

Chocolate caramel slices are not only a yummy snack but also healthy!
