When we shot this recipe, I ate about 20 of these. I’m just putting this out there: it wasn’t such a great idea. Hahah!

While these sweet-bites are probably the best thing you’ve ever taste, please enjoy them responsibly.

I’m so used to healthy energy balls, that I kind of forgot that these have marshmallows, butter, chocolate and rice puffs.
