• 1/4 cup honey (or you can substitute stevia if desired)
• 1/2 cup shredded coconut
1. In a large bowl, combine cacao, coconut oil, coconut butter, almond butter, and honey. (You can warm this a bit over hot water if your room temperature is too cold for the ingredients to mix well.)
2. Stir ingredients until well combined.
3. Place bowl in freezer for 10-15 minutes until chocolate reaches cold, firm consistency.
4. Remove from freezer and roll into 1 inch balls.
