Can you believe that with only nutritious ingredients you have the possibility to enjoy a little delicacy? That’s the idea I bring you today with these Almond balls, a perfect snack for your kids and for us, especially when we are craving for something sweet, and what better than something containing healthy ingredients. Of course, everything in excess (no matter how healthy it might be) is bad, but trying just one or two of these balls, believe me that it will do you very well.
For the chocolate cover these balls have, I recommend using one that’s 60 or 70% cocoa, because it contains less sugar and the cocoa flavor is more real. Today you can find chocolate chips having that percentage of cocoa. These chips are easy to use, as you only need to place them in the microwave to melt.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and dare to try new flavors, I promise you will not regret it.
