The 12 Balls of Christmas: Festive Cranberry Chocolate Chip Balls

Festive Cranberry Chocolate Balls


For the 11th ball of Christmas I’d like to offer you….festive cranberry chocolate chip balls!  When I was brainstorming different recipe ideas I came up with some flavours that were particularly festive.  One of the tops flavours I picked were chocolate (goes without saying) and cranberries!  Put them together and what do you get?  Delicious granola-like balls that have a tart and sweet hit!  Feel free to substitute with dried cherries or raisins if you wish!


1 cup nuts, oats or a combination of both

3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup dried cranberries

2-4 tbsp mini chocolate chips



1. Add nuts and/or oats into the food processor.  Blend until a fine powder or as chunky as you like.

2. Add the dates and blend until a “dough” consistency.  Add water (1 tbsp at a time) if you need to make it more wet.

3. Scrape into a bowl, mix in the chocolate chips and dried cranberries.  Roll between your hands (wet your hands if they stick) to make about 12 1-inch balls.

Enjoy!  Store in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer!
