Do you know that superfoods are nutrient rich foods that are great for boosting your health?
It is well known that everything that comes from the beehive is a superfood. So it is no surprise that we, at The Honey Cottage, use honey every day. We also love using honey comb and this recipe is a great use for this bee-licious product. This snack is packed with other superfoods too; hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, goji berries, and shredded coconut. It is high in protein, fiber, and usable energy. We hope you are as buzzed about these honey comb chocolate balls as much as we are; ENJOY!
4 ounces- Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate Bar
1/3 cup- Honey Comb
½ cup- Honey
1/3 cup- Peanut butter
3 Tbsp- Hemp seeds
2 Tbsp-Cocoa nibs
2 Tbsp- Goji berries
3 Tbsp- Sunflower seeds
½- ¾ cup- Shredded coconut
For this first part you will use a double boiler; take a sauce pan and add about a cup and a half of water into the pot. Place a glass or small metal bowl on top of the sauce pan to melt the chocolate; I found that it prevents the chocolate from burning and allows the honey comb to melt without over heating it. *Use pot holders when holding the bowl.
When the chocolate is halfway melted, add the honey comb and honey. Stir with a spatula until the honey comb is nice and melted and mixture looks smooth. Using pot holders; take the bowl off of the pot of water and place on the stove. Add the peanut butter and hemp seeds; fold until thoroughly mixed. Grind the cocoa nibs and goji berries until they are bite sized pieces; add to the mixture with the sunflower seeds. Mix until everything is nice and coated. Take a Tbsp sized cookie dough/ ice cream scoop and scoop out the mixture into the shredded coconut. Coat each piece and place on a sheet pan, lined with parchment paper, about ½ inch apart. Place into the fridge for hour to firm up the balls. Store in an air tight container; keep them fresher and keep them in the fridge for up to a week! ENJOY!!!
– Grind up almonds or walnuts and use it in place of the coconut for the coating
– Add almond butter instead of peanut butter
– Use a lighter honey to add a different flavor
