I don’t know about you but there are just some days when I NEED Chocolate.  Honestly, the past few days have been like that for me. When I want to make my treats a bit Smarter & Sexier than just running to the store & getting a dark Chocolate Bar I make these little balls of love…don’t let the prunes scare you away–they are truly delish!
