Happy Valentines weekend! I know it’s often thought of as a Hallmark holiday, but I love any excuse to eat chocolate and celebrate the people I love. ????

So this weekend, I’m making a batch of these brownie batter balls- I’ve been making these since all the way back in my personal chef days, but I kicked it up a notch with some magic shell, this year! The best part? They’re EASY and made of ingredients you might already have at home.

They make the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee, or a little sweet treat. Enjoy!

Have you ever made all-natural magic shell? It is seriously THE most easy and delicious topping for balls, bars- or ice cream!!

Natural ‘magic shell’ chocolate:

3 tbsp coconut oil (the kind that hardens when it’s cool)

4 tbsp (1/4 cup) cocoa powder

1 tbsp maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)

1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat until liquid, whisking well.

2. Let sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly and drizzle or dip balls in chocolate.

3. Place in fridge or freezer to firm up chocolate. Store in fridge and enjoy!

Now for those brownie balls…
