Cacao Energy Bites

It truly feels like winter right now. We are set to experience temperatures peaking at -2 over this weekend, I’m sipping spicy chai daily, blankets are all over the flat and I’m constantly looking out of the window to see if any snow has fallen yet. The recipe I’m offering you today is one that is great for gifting as well as keeping up your own energy levels as things get busier towards the holidays. I usually make the gifts I give my loved ones at Christmas and truffles read more
