    Yummo! I used a mixture of Walnuts, almonds, cashews and brazil nuts (Prob 1.5 cups total) and also added extra dates as I went crazy with the cacoa. Clearly I cant follow directions lol. I also added a tiny bit of coconut oil to the main mix to get just the right stickiness. Serving with frozen berries is the best idea! I’m in heaven, my new fave 🙂

    • Yum love your creativity!

  • Hi Jessica,

  • Kylie

    These are so amazing! Do you have any nutritional info on them? Eg amount of sugar, calories etc?

  • Alyce

    Once these have set in the fridge, when serving them is it okay to microwave to heat them up and make them nice and warm and gooey?

    • I would prefer you to use an oven to heat them 🙂

    Hey Jess,
    Is there something I can use instead of cocoa butter? Would normal butter work?(not as healthy I know) Or coconut oil or something?
    Thanks!

    • Normal butter would work 🙂
