    And a friend who knows that chocolate and cherries ALWAYS BELONG TOGETHER.

    i love these naked truffles… love coconut, cashew and cherrry!!

    Nice balls! (Ha. I’m so immature. There is a street in Townsville called Balls Lane and I can’t say it without laughing.)

    But seriously, these “truffles” look just gorgeous. And a perfect gift to a wonderful-sounding friend.

    We found an old bag of dried tart cherries the other day from a camping trip last fall. As we’ve noshed on some with our oatmeal, there are only three or four left. Not enough for balls. And still no cashews in the house – not very ballsy either.

    But now I can sing and be free and tralala the whole day through, dreaming of nothing better than ballsing my way through an afternoon, cat by my side, hot cuppa tea on the table. Okay, so this isn’t exactly what my life will be like in the coming weeks, but uhh, maybe.

      Oh, plus, congrats to your friend! Yahooskidoo for finishing up things!

    How delicious these look you Queen of Balls, you. 😉

  6. leaf (the indolent cook)

    You are one ballsy lady. I’m still awaiting the gift of a food processor so I can try making my own truffly treats. 😉

  7. Lou

    Oh hoooooray! Was just thinking about what kind of vegan treat I should make tomorrow for a family dinner – you’re a legend 🙂 Yummo.

  8. Fatbooo

    Lol… Queen of Balls…!! How do you ever come up with these things?

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh gosh, now I want these to go with my papaya ones! They look gorgeous. I love that they have a story behind them too 🙂

    I agree it’s time for some naked balls! Am I allowed to say that here? I always rolled mine in coconut. But it’s true!

  11. Sarah

    I want to make those for Christmas!! Just need to get the dried cherries. I wonder if you could use fresh?

  12. Three-Cookies

    ANZAC oookie dough is extremely delicious and these balls have the main ANZAC flavours. Without trying and without being a diamond I know these are delicious.
    Friends who do so much for you certainly deserve naked balls:)

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I feel like you writing about the Queen of Balls or Queen of Naked Balls was a shout out to me 😛

  14. Emma

    Yummmmmmmmm…I have recently taken to making all my desserts in raw and ball form as I am too lazy to do anything else. Naked balls still sounds more sanitary than raw balls though…

  15. Adrienne @ Whole New Mom

    Hi there.

    These look wonderful! My only concern is the raw oats. I have read a lot about the phytic acid in oats being a huge problem and pulling nutrients out of the body. I wonder if you could soak the oats (sort of) in the liquid sweetener and then make these to reduce that effect.

  16. Hannah

    These would be such a nice change of pace, to break up all of the heavy, ultra-decadent desserts that the holidays bring. Looks like the ideal balance of sweet and wholesome!

    Milo shortbread. Oh yes please…..!!!!!!

    ….now, where can I find Milo here….?

  18. Ricki

    There is nothing like a good friend. OR Chocolate Cherry No-Bake Truffles! 😀 Yum. And Yum again.

  19. hungryandfrozen

    Oh my Queen of Balls! Am imagining a sceptre with a giant truffle on the top, rolled in neither cocoa nor coconut but edible glitter for maximum sparkle and impressiveness. And perhaps a crown with a truffle sitting on each of the pointy bits. I think I have all those things…with cranberries playing the role of cherries at this performance…and just, *just* enough energy to make them, especially as there are some good friends in my life who deserve these!

    1. Emma

      Hah:) As long as its nude-colored glitter. Buff glitter, if you will.

  20. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    Well bearing in mind how much I couldn’t stop making/eating said Anzac truffles, I think I could just about manage one or twelve of these – if you really twisted my arm, of course… 🙂

  21. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I still have your Anzac truffles bookmarked (“pinned,” actually), but now I may have to bookmark these as well.

    I just pulled some vanilla white chocolate marshmallow cake bars out of the oven and wish you were here to share them with!

  22. msihua

    You gotta work it Lady! We are all diamonds! Although mine is a bit muddy, trampled and dirty.. hee hee.. but yayy to close good friends!

  23. Johanna GGG

    cherry chocolate and coconut – sounds more my sort of thing than anzacs – great gift – your friend sounds like a great recipient of a psych degree – hope it takes her where she wants!

  24. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    I’ve made a lot of truffles/dessert balls too but never vegan (although I do bake vegan sometimes) – these sounds wonderful!

  25. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Oh and PS – everyone deserves a friends like yours (and you!)

  26. Alisa

    Is there any other way to make no bakes than vegan? I guess I’m just so used to dairy-free! And of course, why would you use eggs in no bakes? 🙂 glad you all enjoyed them they look delicious!

  27. Louise

    How lovely exchanging delicious things with your friend. And how lovely going to the Soweto Gospel Choir. I soooo want to go. I know they tour quite a bit but the timing never works out somehow. Am very jealous. And so pleased to know the queen of balls. They all sound delicious, and I should try some some time, when I have half an hour to myself. Actually this time of year a girls thoughts turn to rumballs. Must try and make some of those this week.

  28. Ashley

    I tend to make truffles of the exceedingly chocolatey sort with truck loads of cream, but I love the look of your recipe! And they look so pretty! 🙂 Will have to mix this in with the lot this year maybe…

    Love! Love and baked goods. How gorgeous. You truly are the Queen of Balls 🙂
