Last time I was here I mentioned my upcoming YA paranormal romance novel Entangled and my favorite cookbook Health by Chocolate.

I’m back to announce the release of Entangled and share a chocolate recipe (courtesy of Victoria Laine).

Entangled in Brief

Twin witches become trapped in one body after a resurrection spell goes wrong. Cause of death: eating poisoned chocolates meant for another girl.

Non-Poisoned Chocolates

Below you’ll find a recipe that’s not only safe, it’s healthy!

These puppies kept me and my co-workers going during the Christmas rush in our shipping department. It’s a burst of energy in a ball!

Triple Omega Energy Balls

Makes: 16 ping-pong sized balls

(c) 2007 Nanette Samol

2 Tbsp flax seeds (ground or unground)
2 Tbsp hulled hemp seeds
1 cup walnuts
¾ cup apricots
¾ cup figs or raisins
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ – 1tsp maca, ginseng or cinnamon
¼ cup white sesame seeds (or ground coconut flakes)
½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips for melting


Place all ingredients, except sesame seeds and chocolate chips into a food processor and process several minutes (usually at least two) with an ‘S’ blade, until mixture forms a moist mass.

Roll mixture into balls and set on a plate.

Quickly dip each ball in a bowl of water and roll in the sesame seeds to coat or in melted chocolate.

Thanks to Victoria Laine for the use of her recipe and photo, and to Mayra Calvani for welcoming me back.
