These Chocolate Bliss Balls make a quick and healthy snack while satisfying your chocolate cravings. Quick and easy recipe ready in 15 minutes!Heads up! This Chocolate Bliss Balls recipe was first published in February 2015. I made the slightest update to the recipe to make it more fudgey (always a good thing!) and updated the photos, March 2018. Enjoy!
I have to tell you about the conversation that went on when I taking pictures of these Chocolate Bliss Balls.
Tim: Taking more pictures of terd balls?
My mother-in-law, Fran: Tim! Those are delicious!
Tim: I know they’re good. But don’t you have a billion terd ball recipes on your site already? (Looking at me.)
Maryea: You can never have too many Chocolate Bliss Ball recipes.
Whether you call them terd balls, bliss balls, energy balls, energy bites, Larabar copycats, or healthy snacks, don’t you agree? Having some healthy balls on hand is a necessity. Now that sounds worse than calling them terd balls. Let me just get to the recipe!
4 ingredients. Including chocolate. Ready in 10 minutes. 15 minutes if you get interrupted, which you probably will if your house is anything like mine. You can handle 15 minutes, though, right? What are you waiting for? Just look at how fudgy they are!

These Chocolate Bliss balls make a quick and easy healthy snack!
- 1 cup cashews
- 3/4 cup pitted dates
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/8 cup raw honey or maple syrup
- splash of milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until crumbly.
- Add a splash of milk and process again. Test the mixture to see that it will hold together, but isn’t too sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more cocoa powder. If it’s too dry, add another small splash of milk.
- Roll the mixture into approximately 1-inch balls (bigger or smaller if you prefer).
- Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
Optional: Drizzle melted chocolate on the top for added decadence.

Just made these and they turned out really well. I used a dash of coconut cream instead of milk and a teaspoon of coconut oil. Thank you for sharing the recipe, love it.

I loved your blog. Thank you for the information
Interesting, thank you very much, I will learn from you for this – https://minecraft-classic.com/
I love the addition of Cashews, never seen that one in a recipe. I love cashews and dates, so this recipe will be made soon! – https://minecraft-classic.com/
No cashews so used a mix of toasted pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds & almonds). Added zest of an orange and a squeeze of orange juice (instead of milk) Delicious! Thank you for sharing.
taste delicious! but were too soft to roll into balls. i might have added too much milk?
I’m guessing that was your problem, Chris. Sorry about that!
All good. I made then again subbing the milk with two small spoon fulls coconut oil and they were perfect!
Oh my goodness! These look delicious!
Now I will think about these until I make them! Yum.
Wow! So many riches for the senses. Thanks for sharing!
I do not like cashews. Will any nut do?
Yes, you can sub them out. I would try almonds.

Terd balls… sounds just like my hubby! I love the addition of Cashews, never seen that one in a recipe. I love cashews and dates, so this recipe will be made soon!
I hope you love it, Rachel! Thanks. 🙂
I love the ball recipes. They are delicious. In my house they are lovingly called “poo-poo balls”. My kids are very popular at lunchtime with their classmates when there is a poo-poo ball to share.
Haha I love that! 🙂
I do wish you would write a cookbook with all your recipes at some point. It would be the book that I use the most! I love the Chocolate Oatmeal Granola Bars! I love knowing that they are healthy and have no unexpected ingredients in them. I took them to the office and they were a big hit! You make the best snack recipes! Happy Valentine’s Day!
That’s very sweet of you to say–your comment made my day. 🙂 Maybe someday…
Zen Tree Wellness says
Yup. I can just hear Tim saying that!

I’m with you, I can never have too many ball recipes. I make a batch every Sunday and keep them in the freezer. Each morning I take two out to bring to work for a mid-morning snack. These sound mighty delicious! I made some lemon coconut ones the other day and I’m really loving those, both chocolate is always a winner in my book.
Oooh lemon coconut sounds wonderful! Two of my favorite flavors. 🙂
