We are always on the lookout for ways to include young children in the cooking process and these Chocolate Balls are the perfect solution. The unhulled tahini gives them quite a healthy taste, and you could substitute peanut butter is that is preferred in your household.

Children (and of course children at heart) will have a "ball" getting their fingers covered in this gooey honey, tahini and best of all - chocolate mixture. I was surprised at how well very small children can make a ball shape unassisted, but you'll be lucky if any make it onto the plate. Most of our mixture ended up on the children's faces and the floor was covered in dessicated coconut, but it sure was a heap of fun.

Below is the basic recipe, but you could add nuts (chopped walnuts, pecans, pepitas or sunflower seeds) or dried fruit such as dates, sultanas, apricots or even experiment with rolling them in sesame seeds instead of dessicated coconut.

Rolling the mixture into balls - the fun part
