Ok, so if you are looking for your chocolate phix, this is seriously it. And since these superfood wonders are so incredibly rich, you really can’t eat more that 2, OK, max 3! But fear not, even though these delectable mineral rich morsels—iron, magnesium, phosphorus—are high in fat, it is the healthy fat. The healthy fat that keeps us satiated and trim, the healthy fat that speeds up our metabolism. This is the healthy fat that lowers cholesterol. Did I mention the huge antioxidant factor. So if you must indulge, this is it.
Makes a dozen inch-sized truffles. And takes 5 minutes!
