Richard and I headed to downtown Waynesville to walk Puppy and soak up some of the fall weather. It was nice to get out of the house and spend time with two of my favorite men.
The main street is packed with antique shops, outdoor havens and boutique food stores. We stopped at a dog bakery to get Puppy a special treat. His 1st birthday is next week! (Puppy chose one of the big bones.)
The view is pretty awesome too!
After dinner and a drink (Disaronno and soy milk) I decided it was time to finally make Karis’s Sex Balls. Karis and I worked together at the Orlando lululemon she brought in these sex balls. It was my first introduction to maca root powder; maca has tons of health benefits and is known to be an aphrodisiac.
Karis wrote the recipe on a Post-It note and for the past year it’s been on my fridge. The recipe:
Karis’s Sex Balls
2 tbsp agave
2 oz cacao powder
2 heaping tbsp maca powder
8 oz nut butter
*roll balls in powder sugar*
I eyeballed measurements and mixed and tested as I went. I rolled the end result into tiny balls and coated them in powdered sugar. For good measure I stuck the plate in the freezer for an hour to help them set.
The balls are rich and not to sweet with a wonderful nutty flavor. They’re pretty healthy, too- healthy fats and protein from the nut butter, antioxidants from raw cacao powder… and the maca of course!
