    I like to take these energy balls one step further instead of rolling them in aboove ingredients. I melt 6 ounches of bittersweet baking chocolate in a microwave and dip the energy balls in chocolate. After dipping I place them on a foil lined cookie sheet then place all of them in refrigerator to set up.

    I store my chocolate covered energy balls in the freezer and take a few with me when I play golf. They will soften at room temperature but they are delicious and give me an extra boost on the golf course.
