If you’re sitting there with your hand in the air (which I totally hope you are) then I’m sure you’ll love this recipe.

Not only are these Snack Balls packed with the healthy, nourishing fats that are found in butter, but since they aren’t cooked you are getting nutrients and enzymes from the raw honey!

  1. Ensure butter is at room temperature
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl
  3. Line a plate with parchment paper and make the mixture into balls (hint- using a melon baller or a tablespoon measure makes this process easy!)
  4. If you desire, sprinkle some optional toppings on the chocolate balls (Ex- coconut flakes, sea salt)
Keep any leftovers in the fridge or freezer.


There’s not much better than a quick’n’easy, delicious, healthy chocolatey-snack.

    How do you decide whether to eat an EO or not?….the one I clicked on above(peppermint) says therapeutic grade.

    • Greta says:

      Therapy Grade is about the best. CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are guaranteed to be pure, natural, and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. Some oils say “not for human consumption”. They could have anything above in it or for insurance purposes not want to be bothered with all the hoops to jump through even if they are pretty pure. So go for the therapy grade.

    hey i have all the ingredients except peppermint oil!! i have a bottle of peppermint extract. do you think this would work??

    • Hi Joanna, Yes it would work, but you’d have to add more peppermint extract. Peppermint oil is super concentrated. I’d start out with 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract and then do a little taste test to see if you need to add more. Hope that helps!
