The ingredient list is pretty much summed up in the post title, with the exception of liquid sweetener, which I used in the form of Sweet Freedom low GI sweetener. I have mentioned the Sweet Freedom Choc Shot sauce before and was pleased to recently spot this syrup in their range. It's made entirely from fruit extracts and carob and I think it tastes like a cross between maple syrup, rice malt syrup and molasses.
Once you have your ingredients, you mix them up, roll into balls, and allow to chill for a few hours. If you are
My only warning with this recipe? Try not to drop your cocoa container whilst making the balls. I did that, and the result wasn't pretty...

With clean hands, roll heaped teaspoons of mixture into small balls. Refrigerate for a few hours and then serve.
