Sour Cherry Surprise Balls

I'm posting this now due to forgetting yesterday. Leave out the lucuma and halve the cacao and pour into molds for chocolates. Or halve the lucuma and add a tablespoon of coconut oil and chill an then use as a spread. Or replace the sour cherries with another dried fruit such as raisins. Really, the options are endless. I ran out of cherries by the end so really the surprise was "OMG! I didn't get a sour cherry" in my case  ;)

Sour Cherry Surprise Balls


50g cacao powder

70g cacao butter, melted

1/2 cup lucuma powder

60g honey

1/4 - 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

4 Tablespoons dried sour cherries

rice flakes, for rolling


Mix lucuma and cacao in a small bowl. Whisk together cacao butter peppermint, and honey. Add in they powder mix. Keep adding in more lucuma untill you get a dough. Roll a ball of it around a sour cherry and repeat the rest of the dough. Crush some rice flakes and roll each ball in them until well coated. Chill until hard about 10 - 20 minutes and serve.
