Whoa!! These were outrageously creamy good! Super easy and shockingly wonderful. Because of a chocolate allergy I substituted carob, added some cinnamon and a tiny amount of stevia to sweeten a bit (maybe 1/8 tsp-probably didn't even need it). DH and I are trying out the RAW diet and these were perfect. We'll be taking these to the family reunion, they are sure to be a hit! Thank-you for a wonderful treat.
These were good. I've been eating them as snacks all week. They seem to hold up for about 5 days in the fridge. These are not sweet at all, very healthy tasting. This is fine for me, but if I were serving these to guests I'd probably add in some agave nectar to sweeten. I added some of the walnuts to the food processor by themselves to get them finely ground (for rolling them in), set those aside and then mixed the rest. It was a little thick to process, even with my decent food processor. Blenders would not work for this recipe.
