When I hear the word chocolate truffles, a fancy chocolate-covered bite-sized ball comes to mind.

Though there are many kinds of truffles, they are commonly regarded as chocolate ganache-covered balls rolled into cocoa or sugar.

These Chocolate Energy bites are truffle-like balls that are healthy and have wholesome ingredients like raw cashews, coconut, dates, etc.

They are packed with protein, fats, and superfoods like cacao powder.
