Dark chocolate with Sea Salt must be one of the best combinations ever. Use this chocolate to make energy balls and you will obtain a nutritious and delicious snack! Even better, these treats are no-bake, so they are super easy and quick to make, and are a brilliant alternative to an everyday sugar-laden chocolate bar. You’ll get the best results if you use a food processor, as the texture will be super smooth and delicious, however if you want to use some elbow grease, that will work too!

 

Ingredients

1 Love Cocoa Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate bar

1 cup peanut butter 

1/3 cup honey

1 ¾ cup oats

½ cup shredded coconut

½ cup shredded almond                                                                               

1 cup dates

Sea salt

 

Method

  1. Combine 1 cup of oats, shredded coconut, almond and dates in a food processor until the mixture is fully combined.
  2. If you want the texture to be totally smooth, add the ¾ cup oats to the food processor and pulse this too, but if you want more of a variety of texture, leave the ¾ cup out and add this to the mixture by hand.
  3. Place the oats, filling and dates into a bowl.
  4. In a saucepan, melt the peanut butter and honey. Add Love Cocoa chocolate bar until melted.
  5. Pour the hot mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well.
  6. Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
  7. Leave in the fridge or freezer for around 2 hours.
  8. Keep the energy balls stored in the fridge.

  • These energy balls are a lovely idea BUT
    if you are a Uk brand why are measurements in ‘cups’ eg a third of a cup of honey
    Why not have measurements in grams (as you chocolate bars are) and ounces (This would
    work in more places in the world).
    I dislike coconut and my partner has a peanut allergy So that is a shame.,Could you put alternative
    Ingredients and if you. Think cup measurements should be listed then list grams and ounces too.
    Please take on board thank you

Way too moreish

I bought one of these some time ago and after giving my children a taste I was left disappointed that their was little left for me. They keep bugging me to buy more so have just order the 8 box for their Christmas stockings. Only 2 will make it into the stockings, the rest will be well hidden and will be my secret stash.

The flavour and texture takes me back to my childhood when chocolate was a treat and not filled with additives, now only if you could recreate the "finger of fudge" of old I'd be back in the halcyon days of youth.

I'd recommend the dark gin truffles which I bought in John Lewis, they are heaven, wish I could order those online.

One word of warning, once opened they don't last long, and are not for those on a diet!

Best chocolate ever!

It's really hard to find chocolate that is not only milk free, but also soya free. This chocolate fits the bill perfectly and is absolutely delicious!

Great gift

Sent these as a wee gift to a friend who was having a tough time. She was delighted - they're both pretty AND tasty!!

Love this

Received this for free from O2.
Love it, just gone online and ordered more. If you like dark chocolate, i would definitely recommend this, especially with the sea salt

Excellent service

Excellent service and excellent chocolate
