Happy Eclipse weekend! To celebrate the total eclipse occurring this Monday August 21st, our friend Kate Gavlick has created a recipe for some decadently dark Eclipse Balls featuring Honey Mama’s Nibs & Coffee bar. Unlike the eclipse, however, you can experience these whenever you like, so go on and whip up a batch to share today.
by Kate Gavlick (follow her for more great recipes)
1 Honey Mama’s Nibs and Coffee bar
¼ cup coconut butter
½ cup pecans
1 heaped Tablespoon coconut oil
2 Tablespoons cold brew coffee (we used Stumptown)
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Combine all ingredients, except for coconut flakes, in a food processor and pulse until combined and sticky, but not overly broken down – just about 15-20 seconds.
Scoop a heaped tablespoon of mixture into hands and roll into a ball. Dip into coconut flakes to make an eclipse pattern. Repeat for the remainder of the mixture.
Store eclipse balls in the freezer for up to six months. Enjoy!
