Healthy Chocolate Snowballs

Up close: my second foray into making homemade chocolate meets energy balls.

As one of my final "projects" in England, I decided to make chocolate goodies. One of the treats I experimented with earlier this summer was making energy balls. This version uses homemade chocolate to bring all the energetic goodness together. Tried my best to use mostly raw ingredients. Rolled it by hand and then rolled the balls in desiccated coconut before it set into its chocolatey goodness! So easy to make, and turns out so tasty and healthy at the same time!

Practically anything that was on hand in terms of nuts, seeds, and dried goodies...
* desiccated coconut
* flax seeds
* sunflower seeds
* pumpkin seeds
* goji berries
* 70% dark chocolate 
* raw cacao nibs

Binding it all together:
* homemade chocolate
- 1/3 fair-trade cocoa
- 1/3 virgin coconut oil
- 1/3 cocoa butter
all melted together in a glass bowl surrounded by hot water
- sweetened with coconut nectar to taste
(you can use agave nectar alternatively)
