Good morning lovelies, and welcome to the second in the mini series Pretty Wee Christmas.  If you missed last week’s Christmas Tree Pizza you can check it out here.

I feel totally immersed in the Christmas spirit now that I have assembled our Christmas tree.  I know…left it a bit late didn’t I (hahahaha), I couldn’t help myself.  The only question this year is how long the lower layer will stay decorated for.  Anyone have any tips to keep little hands off decorations, let me know below!

There is nothing quite like white chocolate at Christmas.  I know in Australia and New Zealand we don’t get to experience a traditional white Christmas, but growing up and still to this day I love the magic of a white style Christmas.  These white Christmas bliss balls will make your Christmas table pop and glitter, and also taste pretty delish.  Oh and one last thing, they are almost totally healthy too!

Pretty Wee Christmas bliss balls

What you will need:

  • So, you will need to first make my Bliss Balls! All the ingredients for these are listed in the post BUT ADD PEPPERMINT ESSENCE to the mixture!  Essential step as it will make the white Christmas bliss balls taste like candy canes and Christmas!!!!
  • 1/2 block good quality white chocolate.  This is the unhealthy part!
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • Edible sprinkles (green and red work perfectly)
  • Shredded coconut (snow)

What to do:

  1. Once you have made the bliss balls, pop them in the fridge!
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt by microwaving or holding over a pot of boiling water.  It is essential that you do not get any water into the chocolate mix
  3. Add the coconut oil and combine
  4. Dip each bliss ball into the white chocolate mix and set aside on baking paper
  5. Sprinkle with edible sprinkles or to keep them mostly healthy use shredded coconut for a “snow” like effect
  6. Once all balls are dipped and sprinkled, pop them in the fridge to set
  7. These can be served at room temperature, however, be mindful that the chocolate may melt if it gets too warm (don’t be fooled, it’s only a pretend white Christmas after all!).

These would be super fun to make with your kiddies and have everyone decorate like Christmas babbles.  I hope you all enjoy and I will be linking up with Fabulous Foodie Friday (and here) to share this recipe too!  See you all next week! xxx

    1. Haha Lauren…looks like the problem was solved by our little man. He has pulled off all the baubles he can reach and hid them in the corner between two couches (so he can’t reach them). Good luck…I’m considering cling-wrapping the rest of the tree..

  1. Omg I love white christmas (although I probably love a true white christmas just slightly more). And bliss balls are my favourite go-to snack during the day. Pinning this recipe for later! xx
