Chocolate Energy Truffles

A few weeks back I had exams and naturally needed a pick me up and a boost of energy to keep me going with revision. My favourite thing about this recipe is that there is no baking necessary and it is one of the fastest treats to curb your sweet treat craving. They are the perfect size, and with a few ingredients, you can make big batches that you can store in the refrigerator to last you the whole week (that’s if they won’t be gone on the same day!) My family enjoyed it a lot, especially my dad. He asked for them the next day for pudding; now that’s what I call an accomplishment.
