A delicious recipe to make for mum this coming Mother's Day. If you need reminding or you need to show this blog to someone who might need reminding, it is this Sunday, 11 May.

Most mums adore chocolate. This recipe brings together our desire for that Beautiful Treat, health and ethics all literally rolled into one perfect combination.


The ingredients are all found in your local Trade Aid shop. If you can't get them together in time for this Sunday, never mind, this recipe is wonderful any time of the year because chocolate is not seasonal. Who needs a reason to eat chocolate anyway?

Fair Trade Fortnight is 3 - 18 May. I'm not telling you anything new with the 'why' of choosing Fair Trade brands when you can. The power of our purse can be phenomenal, and don't think for a minute that little-ol-you can't make a difference. Yes, you can.

In our shop we carry a number of Trade Aid products and fair trade items. Our latest is All Good Organics soft drinks. More about these fab alternative fizzies next week.

For those of you whose mums are no longer with us, I hope you enjoy the memories. Happy Mothers' Day everyone!

Double Chocolate Balls
1 packet Trade Aid Almonds (100g)
1 packet Trade Aid Medjoul Dates (200g)
3 - 4 T Trade Aid cocoa powder (depending on how strong mum likes it)
Small pinch Himalayan salt or other good salt
1 t vanilla essence
6 squares Trade Aid dark chocolate, roughly chopped**
Coconut for rolling

Using a food processor, grind almonds until in small pieces. Add dates, cocoa, salt and vanilla - process until a well-mixed, soft dough is formed. Throw in chopped chocolate pieces and process until well mixed but chocolate is still in tiny pieces. Roll into balls and roll in coconut. Indulge.
