Chocolate Heaven Balls are a variation on our very popular Heavenly Chocolate Slices recipe. This delicious and easy-to-make recipe was whipped up by Quest for Life head chef Leanne just ahead of Easter, in the event you want to include a chocolatey dessert over the long weekend.

Makes 12 balls, each having approximately 80 calories.
