These are good. I really like the apricots and the spice in these. I cut it down to 5 servings and got 12 balls using a tablespoon. My pumpkin seeds were lightly salted. I don't like figs so I used raisins and used molasses in place of yacon syrup. Read More

These are o.k. I think the title, with the use of the word "chocolate" is misleading though. They do in fact have choco chips in them but it is not the predominant taste by any measure. The most dominant flavor is that of the yakon syrup. I do think they must be quite healthy. But the other thing to consider is the cost of a couple of the ingredients. Yakon syrup was $16 for 8 oz. You don't use that much but you still have to buy it and to substitute with molasses as someone suggested seems to defeat the purpose of making something healthy. The 1 C of cashew butter is an expense of $12. I couldn't even tell it was in there. They're tasty enough. But they're not chocolatey. Given that and the cost to make, I doubt I'll make them again, unless I can't figure out what to do with the rest of the yakon syrup. Read More
