  1. Add the yoghurt to a bowl and mix in the protein powder well.
  2. Add boiling water to a saucepan over a low heat. Break the dark chocolate into a plastic/glass bowl and gently melt over the saucepan.
  3. Take the bowl of melted chocolate off the saucepan and add the yoghurt & protein to it, stirring well. Put it in the freezer for 5-10 mins until firm.
  4. Wet your hands slightly. Roll a heaped tsp of the mixture into a ball using the palms of your hands and place to one side.
  5. Sprinkle the cacao powder over a dry surface or plate and roll the balls until covered. Keep in the fridge for 3-5 days or freeze for up to a month.
