I just have a thing for the combination of chocolate and orange.  Adding citrus to chocolate raises the (chocolate) bar.  When that tasty combo can be ready for consumption within 10 minutes, I call that success.   

Energy bites - or bliss balls, cookie dough, whatever you like calling them - are so wonderful because they are easy to make, to grab while running out the door, to pack for lunch or a long bike ride, to get that snack and move on to the next thing.  They pack loads of yummy flavor, nutrition, and a quick energy boost into a little portable package.  They are a crowd-pleaser, generally satisfying all age groups (those under three and over one eating tiny pinches at a time).  In short, they are a little round real-food superhero for those moments when we need a boost.

As usual, I recommend doubling the recipe so you have plenty on-hand.  These babies disappear fast!
