  • 1 package sunflower seeds, roasted (10.5 oz or 300g)
  • 2 cups Swerve sweetener
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick softened)
  • 4 bars Moser Roth 85% Cacao Dark Chocolate


  1. Add the package of sunflower seeds to a food processor and grind until it starts to turn into a butter. 

  2. Add in the butter and pulse until the whole mixture is creamy and fluid.

  3. Pour in the Swerve sweetener and pulse until makes a dough.

  4. Take out and form into balls, place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Take out of freezer.

  5. Break up 2 candy bars and place in a SMALL microwavable dish. You want a small ramekin or something that you can roll the balls around in but not waste too much chocolate.

  6. Microwave for 30 - 60 seconds. Mix well and set aside. Take a toothpick and gently stick into one of the balls. Roll it around the chocolate and place it back on the parchment lined cookie sheet. 

  7. Continue with the rest. Let them dry and then refrigerate or freeze. I keep mine in the freezer and they work great.
