Chocolate Truffle Energy Balls

Hi Supermoms,

Home made healthy snacks is always a great option. Here is another easy, quick and under 10 minute No Bake dessert/snack recipe for you. You can use oats, muesli, cornflakes, rice puffs along with dry fruits of your choice to make these energy balls. I have not used refined sugar or butter in this recipe. If you are making these energy balls for children, then you can add butter or ghee to make it even more tasty.

With growing kids who are always hungry, these energy bites will keep them satiated .

6. The mixture will start bubbling and coming together, switch off. 

7. Immediately add the crushed rice puff and dry fruit mixture into the pan with the cocoa mixture.
8. Mix them well.
9. Grease your hands with oil/butter/ghee and shape them into balls.

10. Once the entire mixture is shaped, dust the balls with cocoa powder using a sieve.
