I love these! I make them all the time. Recently, I combined them with a Swedish recipe for chocolate balls. They were fabulous! All you add is cocoa powder, and then coat in shredded coconut. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter and prune paste and allulose instead of honey for a bit of a twist.
