    Thanks for another great recipe. I loosely doubled the recipe (washing the food processor is such a pain :), took out half to make the peanut balls, then to the remainder I added a couple big spoonfuls of cocoa powder and a tbsp or two of agave nectar to make dark chocolate PB balls that are more dessert like. Yum!
