These have got to be one of the most satisfying sweet treats – not only are they chocolatey, fudgy and delicious, they are also packed with protein, healthy fats and amino acids (and SO easy to make!). Snack on them whenever a craving is coming on, use as a post-dinner sweet treat or grab a couple as you are running out the door to keep you going… even when you haven’t had time for breakfast!

Gelatin comes from the bones, hides and connective tissue of animals, so it’s really important to source a good quality one whereby the animal lived in its natural conditions fed its natural diet – in the case of cows, in a paddock eating grass, not locked in a small pen eating grain. Head down to your local health food store to purchase.
