OK, the name is admittedly terrible. They are sooo good, though. I found this recipe in the Whole Foods Market Cookbook. It is no-bake, high-protein, and yummy!
Chocolate Earth Balls
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup clover or orange blossom honey
2 teaspoons carob or cocoa powder
1/2 cup raisins
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans work best)
Stir peanut butter well. Mix the peanut butter, honey, and cocoa powder until well-blended. Stir in the raisins and 1/8 cup of coconut. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Place the remaining coconut, sesame seeds, and nuts in separate bowls. Using a spoon, scoop small heaps of the peanut mixture out of the bowl, and form 1 1/4″ balls. This works best if you make a rough ball, then roll in coconut, then make a more perfectly shaped ball and re-roll in all three things. Arrange the balls on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes more.
