Today’s The Bandit inspired recipe of Chocolate & Orange is brought to us by thesaa.rahproject

These Chocolate and Orange bliss balls are the perfect winter treat, when you open the Tea and the gang tea pack the smell is incredible, it really smells just like the Chocolate and Orange treats you find at Christmas time.

This is the perfect healthy guilt free snack that you can enjoy at anytime with a cup of tea and the best thing is that it is really simple to make. I really hope you enjoy these bliss balls as much as I did.
