Oh I must be a complete fool.  Apparently I forgot that I devoured the entire batch of  almond joy bites  (in one day) when I made their more decadent cousin.

Resist these?  Impossible.  Just look at them, they resemble truffles for heaven’s sake.  I don’t feel guilty about eating a dozen of these babies in one sitting, no sir, not one bit.  After all, they are healthy (the pathetic way I justify gluttony).

These are like homemade Nutella bites on steroids:  double chocolate, hazelnut butter, and crisp brown rice cereal all rolled into a seriously addictive little package.  A drizzle of dark chocolate and a sprinkle of Fleur de Sel is the “icing on the cake” – taking these energy bites to a new level of delicious!

I double dare ya’ to try them.  Let me know how it turns out.  On second thought, if you’re able control yourself, don’t let me know, I’d rather believe you’re just as weak as I am when it comes to chocolate.

Life is short.  Eat chocolate!
