These little balls of chocolate protein bliss are absolutely amaze balls, and are a power pack of yumminess and goodness. Keep them on hand for those mid morning/afternoon snacks and they are PERFECT as a pre-workout snack. I like to make up a batch over the weekend and store half in the fridge for the first few days of the week, and the other half in the freezer to pull out for later in the week:-)
