Something sweet, delicious and easy to make
This recipe is perfect when you want something sweet that is really easy to make and satisfying. I made these chocolate balls a couple of days ago and I have brought them with me to work. It’s great to have something to look forward to in the middle of the day when you have your break. A cup of coffee or tea with this chocolate treat. Yum!
They are also perfect to put in a jar and bring with you to the gym. I always have a protein shake and something with carbs right after I have worked out to give my body the nutrition it needs and having this kind of treat is so much better than just a plain banana.
I choose to add coffee to this recipe and since I love the combination of chocolate and coffee I added lots of it. If you don’t like coffee I would suggest you replace it with the same amount of peanut butter or perhaps a little mint. You could also try adding arrack essence – one of my favorites and a Swedish classic. Have a look at the recipe below that’s one of Sweden’s most famous pastries flavored with arrack.
