These No-Bake Chocolate Mocha Snowballs make the perfect healthy treat for the holiday season. With their rich and indulgent taste, no one will ever guess that they’re a healthier option!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
This past weekend, we had lots of fun celebrating my mom’s birthday. We all went out for dinner as a family and then came back home and had this super delicious homemade fudge-y chocolate cake.
My weakness is chocolate cake. I don’t know what it is about chocolate cake, but it’s deadly.
If it’s rich and fudgey…..even better.
SO my general rule is, unless it’s a special occasion, I try to keep chocolate cake out of the house, or I’ll be wayyyy too tempted to have a slice…..Every. Single. Night.
Instead of keeping chocolate cake around, I try to make healthier treats that remind me of chocolate cake, but are much more waist-friendly options. Like my Fudge-y Almond Protein Cups for example.
Strategic, right? ;)
My latest concoction are these No-bake Chocolate Mocha Snowballs.
They are rich, chocolate-y, fudge-y and have a hint of mocha flavouring, with less than 5 grams of sugar per bite!
Not bad for a sweet treat, eh?
Plus, they have rolled oats for some good ol’ fibre and unsweetened cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips for a burst of antioxidants.
The best part is, you can store them in the fridge or freezer for a quick and healthier sweet treat!
I also love how they look like little fluffy snowballs. A great option if you’re looking for some healthier treats to put out at Christmas time.
Who doesn’t like to eat a chocolate snowball? Plus, they’re no-bake, which means one less thing to put in the oven!
I bet you anything…no one will ever guess that they’re healthy!
