Raw chocolate balls

Another super simple sweet treat that is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. This makes a nice big batch and they freeze well, so I like to freeze up batches to have on hand for the unexpected pop in or just for a chocolately treat in emergencies!

They are perfect with a cup of tea. I adore Pukkah Teas, current favourites are peppermint and licorice, and detox.
