These little treats are an easy option to have up your sleeve to take to gatherings or kids parties. They take only a few minutes to make, and with a bit of fridge time, they are ready to go.
The chocolate comes from the cocoa powder mixed with coconut oil and syrups. Then it is simply and messy task of hand mixing all the ingredients together and licking your fingers clean 😉
