So a work in progress that I'll keep you posted on... So these balls...ummmm...amazing....

Ingredients, for a very small batch of around 12 bite pieces, multiply for more! 1/2 cup melted dark, vegan chocolate 3/4 salted popcorn Method Melt the chocolate, crush the popcorn in a mortar and pestle, combine the two.
