Chocolate Energy Balls

Anyone who knows me will vouch for one thing – I cannot and will not give up chocolate. So naturally, I’m always trying to find a healthy alternative to satisfy the urge to pick up a Kit Kat (I know, cringe, right?) I’ve been seeing these around the Internet for ages and also seeing overpriced versions at all sorts of “homemade this and that” stalls so I thought I’d have a go. It took me about 7 minutes to make these and they are absolutely gorgeous – no joke. Have a go yourself, and let me know how you get on. They are great for Ramadan too – chocolate energy balls.
