Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Mission

This post is in honor of Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Charity Page View Drive: Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness

Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness, Chocolate-Covered Katie

Katie is doing a fantabulous job of spreading kindness. Let’s help her out!! :-D

In honor of the chocolate theme (and y’all know how much I love chocolate!) I thought I’d share a few recipes. Only one is mine, but I think you’ll like the others I mention, too!

Chocolate-Covered Recipes

Katie has a long list of chocolate-covered recipes on her blog. You’ll want to browse through ‘em all! Not only will you come across delicious treats you can whip up for yourself and your family and/or friends, but you’ll be helping Katie raise money for charity while you’re looking!

For starters, you might enjoy perusing her Fudge Babies. Oh, yeah! If that isn’t enough to drive you chocolate bonkers, feast your eyes on All Things Oatmeal, Pancake Pandemonium, The Pudding Files, or the Most Popular. Of course, there are tons more. Enjoy!

Oh, and you might want to grab a napkin before you dig through her recipe archives – you just might drool! ;-)

Averie’s Chocolate Fudge Balls

The amazing Averie is always, always whipping up the most RAWsome Vegan desserts over at Love Veggies & Yoga. She creates the most decadent, sinful looking (yet healthy!!!) treats over there. She’s an incredible inspiration, from her years of yoga practice, to her ability to juggle day-to-day chaos with a toddler, she manages to be wife, momma, blogger, reviewer, keeps a spotless home, and even hosts contests for her readers! But back to those delicious desserts…  Her latest: 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fudge Balls

I haven’t tried Averie’s chocolate ball recipes yet, but I will soon.

Jocelyn’s Brownie Batter Balls

Jocelyn blogs at Jocelyn Eats Fresh. I’m sooooooooooooo proud of her because although her blog posts are often upbeat and inspiring, she’s worked very, very hard at overcoming an eating disorder. She is finding a beautiful balance of healthy foods and also allows herself to splurge sometimes on the not-so-healthy stuff so she won’t find herself feeling the need to go back to those old, harmful habits. She has an “everything in moderation” mentality and it’s working wonders for her body, mind, and soul. She’s a beautiful person, inside and out, and is losing weight the slow, right way. You’re doing a great job, Jocelyn. Keep up the great work!!!

Anyway, I knew I had to try out Jocelyn’s cool creation when I happened upon her Raw Chocolate Brownie Batter Balls. I didn’t have the exact ingredients she used, so I switched it up a little. Or, well, a lot! :-D

And Raw Juice Girl’s version…

Chocolate-Covered Raisin Hemp Balls

This recipe made 14 chocolate balls. It probably would have made 16 or 17. Um… Oops!! *giggles* ;-)

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 6 tablespoons Dark Chocolate Hemp Powder (www.manitobaharvest.com)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon agave (or so)

I had to add a dash more almond flour and a little water to try to get the right consistency. I should have used the food processor, I think. I used the blender instead. Hmmmm…. Or, I needed to start with more liquid.

No worries… they turned out YUMMY!!! :-D

Good, and Good For You!

And that’s it! If you love chocolate-covered raisins, you’ll LOVE these chocolate-covered raisin hemp balls. You’re getting a chocolate (and a snack) fix!

AND hemp is full of whole food nutrition:

“ALL Essential Amino Acids (Protein), Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), and both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre.”– www.manitobaharvest.com

You’ll also be gobbling up antioxidants, boron, calcium, vitamin C, iron… (from the raisins). And the almonds are giving you manganese, vitamin E, magnesium, tryptophan, copper, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), phosphorus…

My goodness, that little chocolate-covered raisin hemp ball packs a powerful punch. I could take a beating (or two!) from these yummy treats. Yep, I could!!!

  1. Hehe I got in through a different computer in the house. Sneaky ;)

    Thank you so much for your kind kind kind post! Plus the hemp balls look awesome! Can my babies come and play?

  2. Michele those look awesome!!!!! And thank you for the link back and for Katie’s linkbacks! I love how you’re putting your own twist on balls :).

    I’ve found too that if the mixture is a little too gloppy that 1 hr in the fridge really helps alot. Takes the moisture out and firms the dough, just enough to work with it better. You didnt look like yours needed it, but in the future, that’s a lil tip for you :)

    Thx for the Wellsphere vote, i repaid the favor and friended you back. Confess that that’s gonna be one of those sites i rarely if ever will check in on…too many great blogs to read first!

    xoxo

    • Thanks, Averie! That means a lot coming from the Raw Dessert Queen!!! :-D

      Yeah, it did get a little too moist. I forgot to mention that I popped ‘em in the freezer for a few. And thanks for the tip!! I’ll try that next time.

      And you’re most welcome for the Wellsphere vote. I only noticed that widget in your sidebar today! LOL Thanks for returning the favor. You didn’t have to, though! ;-)

      No worries. I can’t spend as much time over there as I’d like either. I need to search around and add more friends, etc., and get my account built up there. It is a really cool website with lots of fabulous people, articles, and the community is really great.

      *smiles*
