Raw Coconut Fire Ball Roulette

This isn't so much a new recipe, just a twist on my raw cacao surprise bites recipe (see the recipe here) and a fun idea for entertaining your guests. These raw coconut balls have a lovely balance of sweet and salty and are filled with crunchy raw cacao except one or two balls have cayenne pepper and/or chilli flakes for a surprise fiery kick! 

Raw Coconut Ball Roulette
Take a chance with each raw coconut fire ball!
Every guest takes a chance each time they grab a ball! You can add as much or as little cayenne / chilli as you like or however much you think your guests can take. If you wanted to be really mean, you can use wasabi paste instead!

fill your surprise balls up and add some cayenne, chilli flakes or wasabi to 1 or 2 balls for a game of roulette!
  • place some cacao nibs in the indent the roll the mixture over to form a ball
  • roll the ball in the extra coconut
  • repeat for the remaining mixture but for 1-2 balls (or as many as you like) add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and/or chilli flakes or a small blob of wasabi 
  • you can put the fire balls in a separate container so you don't get confused and accidentally eat it yourself!
  • just remember where you place it when you serve it up :)
  • you should get about 20 balls
  • this can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks
Have fun!!!
