Chocolate Wellness Rum Ball
A yummy treat on road trips and picnics, these indulgent wellness balls are simply bliss. With a generous helping of nuts and a lush coconut coating, it can be tempting to savour just one more.


  • 12 dates, pitted

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • 1 cup blanched almonds

  • 1 cup walnuts

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 45g Well Naturally Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Melts

  • ½ capful of rum

  • ½ cup shredded coconut


  • 1.

    Using a high powered food processor, combine all of the ingredients except for the coconut. Blitz until you are left with a thick paste.

  • 2.

    Roll about a tablespoon of the mixture into a ball and repeat until you have used up all of the mixture.

  • 3.

    Take each ball and then roll in the coconut to coat.

  • 4.

    Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to set.
