Deliciously Raw Vegan Cacao Balls



I don't know about you but I LOVE chocolate! But most store bought chocolate is processed and contains refined sugar and other additives that I just don't want to put into my body. So whats a chocolate lover to do? Make her own cacao balls that are "super food packed" and yummilious! It's a family favorite!
