The kids think that they are chocolate, but in fact they are good for you. (They are also vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free, egg free and wheat free - although check the ingredients list on your vanilla and cocoa to ensure this)

|1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
|2 tablespoons rich dark cocoa|
Blend all ingredients together, roll into balls and roll in dessicated coconut.
