I thought the cocoa powder ones were a little bitter. I sprinkled them with sugar too. I also tried crushed heath bars, which were good. Very easy, but remember to have your stuff out to roll before you make the balls.

Great treat as is but to make them into super energy healthy balls, you can add things like sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, wheat germ, raisins, unsweetened coconut etc. directly to the mix (just add more peanut butter if it is too dry). I prefer roasting my coconut first (place coconut in oven on cookie sheet on broil until golden, give it a stir and broil a tad longer, but watch it closely), it just makes it that much better! You can also replace powdered milk with protein powder. I love rolling them in icing sugar.

My daughter loved these...we rolled them in a bunch of diffrent things (crunched m&m's, coconut, melted chocolate, powered sugar, and more..) tastes great and easy to make!!!

Very tasty and quick to make! I use my little 'scoop' from Pampered Chef to make the balls. They are flat on one side and sit nicely in a container. We actually store ours in the freezer. Awesome little protein treat for the summertime!

These yummy little balls will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth! I added 3/4 C coconut to the mixture before rolling them into balls. Mmmmm.
