Default Paleo Cocoa (70%) Balls

Any one else addicted to these? Making a batch (12 balls) almost every other day now. Each balls comes to about 5 grams of fat each. Perfect snack for taste and extra fat blocks. Sure beats measuring out a 1/3 c of olive oil if your keeping score at home.

If Robb doesn't introduce his highly anticipated "Paleo Bar" sometime soon, I might take these commercial Keep a look out for them at the checkout counter next time your at Trader Joe's

Almost positive the recipe is from the Dec 06 PM Journal. My adope program is acting dumb right now so I'm unable to check for you.
Here is my own version (which is very close by the way):
1/2c almond meal (TJ's)
1/3c cocoa powder (TJ's)
1/4c coconut oil (cheaper to buy the flakes from a health food store).
3 drops of stevia extract (NOW)
2 packets of splenda
1/4 stick of butter
1/8c coconut milk
1/8c heavy creamer

Combine sugar and cream over medium heat. When hot add chocolate. Stir. Put in freezer for 10mins. Roll in balls. Back in freezer for 10mins. Enjoy!

I always have a problem getting them to be firm enought to roll into balls. I do really like them though.
