Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Popper (2)

Here’s how: make them and share them! But, we challenge you to eat more than two. They are so decadent!

 

Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Popper

Ingredients:

½ C. organic cream cheese, softened

2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tbsp. raw pecans, ground and another tbsp. for sprinkling on top

 

Method:

Mix all but the final tablespoon of pecans together in a mixing bowl until the cream cheese and cocoa powder are smooth and creamy.

Put the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Sprinkle your hands with water, then shape ½ tbsp. of the mixture at a time into balls.

Garnish with the ground pecans you held in reserve.

Keep refrigerated until party time.

 

Easy, creamy, deep chocolate flavor. It is so holistic!
