Dark Chocolate Covered Lychee Balls

Fresh fruit desert, made with some of our favorite ingredients! Impress your family and friends with these little bites of love! These babies are stuffed!

Henry and I love Lychee Fruit when it’s fresh. Lychee loses some of it’s taste when it’s canned and is usually bathed in some kind of syrup or sugar water – really NOT something that we want.

So how do you make these amazing little gems?  Easy…

whole lychee fruit, one half peeled
  • buy as many Lychee as you like
    • you will need to peel them
    • once you peel them, carefully slice them open down one side and push out the seed…carefully
  • now place one Gooseberry in the middle of each lychee (look for small gooseberries, some are large which will not work)
  • roll stuffed lychee in almond meal
  • roll stuffed almond meal encrusted lychee’s, very carefully in dark chocolate cover
  • (optional…feel free to roll the chocolate covered lychee ball in coconut flakes, delicious!! We made them both ways
  • Chill in refrigerator for 20 – 30 minutes prior to serving.

These are amazing!  Devour with enjoyment – Jo & Henry 🙂
