  • 40 g white chocolate
  • 10 date balls (we used Woolies’ hazelnut-and-coffee date bites)
  • desiccated coconut
  • a handful of blueberries or pomegranate rubies

Cooking Instructions

1. Melt the chocolate and drizzle a little on top of each date ball.

2. Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle over a little coconut and dot with the pomegranate rubies or blueberries to look like holly berries.

Cook’s note: This recipe was part of a series of recipe tests for Christmas hacks seen on Pinterest. Our verdict: fun to make and surprisingly delicious. Date balls coated in chocolate get our vote! Easy if you opt for Woolies’ date balls with flat bottoms. I lost a couple of the round variety, which rolled away while receiving their melted chocolate.
