Chocolate Balls

Chocolaty, sticky and sweet deliciousness with hidden nutrition inside.

These are so good, I promise no one will mind the mess!

What you’ll need:

2 oz. of your favorite allergy-friendly cookies (we used 5 Jo-Sef’s square cookies)

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

1 tablespoon coconut

1 tablespoon ground nuts (optional)

2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup

Toppings: Sprinkles, chocolate crunchies, coconut, Enjoy Life granola

Gallon-sized Ziploc bags for crushing cookies, bowls and spoons for mixing ingredients and plates or cute take-home containers for the finished masterpieces.

Directions:

1. Lay out the toppings in different plates. Place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and have your child crush them into fine crumbs with their fist.

2. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and then add the flax, coconut, and nuts (if using). Mix well. Add the chocolate syrup and stir to combine.

3. Take about a palmful of the mixture and form it into a ball and then roll it in one of the toppings. (If it’s too dry add more chocolate                                                                           syrup, too wet add some more flax seed.)

.                                                                         4. Repeat till you finish up all of the mixture.

Note: If you don’t have any chocolate syrup on hand, you can substitute it with 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder,     1 tablespoon of agave nectar or maple syrup and enough water just to make the mixture wet enough for rolling. Start by adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time.

Enjoy!

Now, you can watch Maya show you how to make them!
