Easter treats can be fun and healthy with these quick, kid-friendly balls of chocolate flavors. You’ll want to make them year round too but they sure can make a perfect substitute for popular Easter, sugar laden candies and eggs. These Cacao Nib coated treats will give kids and adults the healthiest option for a sweet and chocolate treat this Easter. Plus, once you’ve got this recipe down, the sky’s the limit for new versions, flavors and shapes.
Raw Cacao Nibs are just so yummy on their own. But when you add them to these healthy truffles, they’re just heavenly.
If you can’t find cacao nibs in your area, these are certainly delicious treats with cocoa powder coating instead. But I urge you to give the nibs a try when you can.
I used NuNaturals Orange and Peppermint Liquid Stevia to make up two different flavor backgrounds for these little balls of fun. The Cacao nibs rolled on top at the end just add to their chocolate background and make them positively super good for you.
Have you ever eaten a whole plate full of candy and not been sinking with guilt and a stomach ache?
Okay, I didn’t eat the whole plate full. Especially since I doubled the batch I made. But if I had eaten them all, it wouldn’t be so bad.
I substituted sunflower seeds in my version here for the cashews in Julie’s recipe, which makes them even more affordable without reducing their nutrition. Which ever nuts your prefer with these, you’ll be so happy you’ve discovered such an easy treat.

Just the perfect healthy treat for Easter. So kid friendly. NO eggs, no refined sugar. Tons of delicious flavor. You’ll never eat just one so you may as well double the batch from the start ♥
Thanks Julie ♥
