Doesn’t get much better than this – a nutrient dense, chocolate snack that won’t stoke sugar cravings but will satisfy a sweet tooth! Raw cacao is known to have the highest amount of antioxidants of any food on the planet. AND you can whip them up in just 15 minutes. I prefer them frozen, it gives them a really great fudge-y texture.
