    Yummers 🙂 What a lovely treat!

  2. Lizzi

    Oh gosh, the songs that make me cry… refer to my comment on my ex-high school music teacher’s blog post about chord progressions. I have problems.

  3. Three-Cookies

    99% Lindt – haven’t seen this yet. Very healthy dessert, indulge guilt-free!

  4. Christine (Merf)

    The heartbreak songs don’t really get to me anymore, but wow, there was a time they did. In a way, I sort-of loved it, feeling so much emotion. A good cry feels great sometimes.

  5. Sarah

    I will be making those balls! Also, the juxtaposition of Simon and Garfunkel and Doctor Horrible speaks to me very loudly. Love them both.

  6. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Appropriately, your short packing list includes chocolate. As it should.

  7. Johanna GGG

    Well I made a version of a previous muffin recipe this weekend and I think I will post it – I love the evolution of recipes on blogs. I smiled at you taking your heater with you – I hope it is for your bedroom and that you don’t have to plug it in and have it at your feet as you sing 🙂 Enjoy your country singing!

  8. Hannah

    Aw, sounds like such a great time- Hope you’re thoroughly enjoying yourself! Those chocolate chip cookie bites look wonderful… A nice balance of delicious and healthy. 🙂

  9. Libby

    I’m going to give these a go soon – yum!

    PS. You look REALLY good in that photo! Wow! 🙂

  10. Akika

    Looking good there ;D I didn’t read the one you posted a few months ago so this one’s still fresh! And it looks fantastic, but woww 99% Lindt is pretty intense.

  11. Kath Lockett

    LOVE Dr Horrible and he’s been getting some serious rotation on our iPad of late – nothing like ‘the deltoids of compassion; the abs of being kind….’ to make things right again!

  12. Cait's Plate

    Yes! “Fix You” by Coldplay! It gives me goosebumps every time.

    Those no-bake chocolate chip cookie balls look so good. I might have to pick up the ingredients for them while I’m out 🙂 I had no idea you could make them without dates!

  13. Evan Thomas

    The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert does me in all the time.

  14. Shannon

    Hurt gets me too. Especially the part “and you should have it all, my whole empire of dirt” wowzers.

    Hope you are having an awesome time in the country singing and eating those balls.

  15. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Yep, in addition to Hurt, Ryan Adams’ version of Wonderwall tears me up. It was the song my husband and I danced to on our wedding day. 🙂

  16. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    mmmm healthy snacking here! love the almond essence you added to these truffles :)! didn’t know that you liked to sing :)!

  17. Priyanka

    There are a couple of songs that get to me each time i hear them. I totally agree you don’t therapy to just get it all out 🙂 You look so pretty in the pic, Hannah!

  18. Errign

    These look great. I’ve got a few recipes coming up for energy balls that are perfect treats or pre-running snacks. I love balls. Erm, yeah, that’s not what I meant really, but you know. Hope your weekend went well & you return with all of your frozen toes still intact.

  19. Jac and Jenn @sketchfreevegan

    mmm cookie dough is my favourite treat! people should eat raw cookie dough more often, so much better than baked. 🙂

  20. Lauren

    That is EXACTLY the type of thing I am interested in eating right now.

    I tear up extremely easily: books, movies, commercials, after a couple drinks… Never songs, though! But I also listen exclusively to Lil’ Wayne in the car. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. Nicki Minaj, too. 😉

  21. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    EEK, ok, I have to point out that Hurt is not by Johnny Cash – he only recorded a COVER of it! It’s really by Trent Reznor, a.k.a. Nine Inch Nails, the best band in the whole entire freaking universe, from the 1994 album The Downward Spiral. Don’t let Johnny’s rendition fool you into thinking it’s HIS song! It’s Trent’s! Download the original, PLEASE!

    Whew, ok, now that I got that out of the way (I nearly have a heart attack every time I hear someone call Hurt a Johnny Cash song, so you must excuse me)…

    We must be psychically in sync yet again, because a recipe very similar to this is in my cookbook. In fact, just tested the final version of it 2 days ago! So we were likely enjoying raw cookie dough truffles at the same time 😀

    1. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

      and PS – I’ve cried to the original version of Hurt since I was 12 years old (14 years now…wow…), and cried (or near-cried) while seeing/hearing it live 11 times. So I get you there. 🙂

      PPS – I have a quite lot of cry-every-time songs, but if I were to pick just one to BEG you to download (besides NIN’s Hurt!), it would be Cool On Your Island by Tori Amos. Pretty please. No black metal whatsoever there! 😀

  22. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Delish indeed! Hope the concerts went well!

  23. muppy

    Looks really interesting, i haven’t tried any of these raw delights as yet!

  24. Brent

    Wow, straight hair really suits you: you look great. 🙂

  25. Ladybird

    Oh how sweet! The concert AND your truffles 😉

    I always cry when I hear our wedding song, but then again, I’m pregnant.. so I cry at pretty much anything remotely sentimental these days! hehehe

  26. Jonathon Clarke

    What a gorgeous pic of you both! Straight hair looks awesome on you, dear lady! Secret song confession: ‘Two Little Boys’ by Rolf Harris. Always gets me teary-eyed, but then I cry easily at sad movies, too! 🙂

  27. Carla

    mmm these look delicious!

  28. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    these look insane, I love them! Hope the tour went well!! Many songs make me want to try. I can get emotional 🙂
    Heidi xo

  29. Margaret

    Well this is strange – I had a Johnny Cash weekend!!
    However, I had PMS, so I was not prepared to listen to sad songs. I couldn’t get enough of “It Ain’t Me, Babe” on the weekend. It’s such a happy, thigh slapping song. 🙂
    I hope you felt relieved and lighter after your sobbing episode. 🙂

  30. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    You had me at chocolate chip cookie dough.

    Love the straight hair, by the way!

  31. Anna Johnston

    You Miss crack me up, I can imagine you singing/crying/singing your heart out, and you do it all with zero alcho to buzz you along. Impressive! My dad was a huge Johnny Cash fan, not a one of his songs make me feel sad, only take me on a trip down memory lane. He always sounds so damn jolly. I cant help but tap the toes and talk in a Southern American accent. LOL. Right… I hope your okay now, and you’ve recovered from your mammoth weekend.
    Your hair looks so pretty, the lighter ends look great. You look good singing, I look stoopid… Not my fortay at all. 😉
    Those balls look great! Want!

  32. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Now if you told me you could time travel I would totally believe it! If anyone could you could! 😉

  33. msihua

    I have a stupid song! Toni Braxton (Unbreak my Heart!).. always makes me sad… AND.. I WILL TRY THIS VEGAN THING YOU CALL CHOCOLATE CHIP Cookie Dough truffles… because you’re my dear “fried” … pffttt

  34. whisperinggums

    I love Hurt, but not when I’m feeling fragile! Glad the weekend worked out well as of course it should have! Wish I could have heard the singing.

  35. Monique

    You look beautiful with straight hair! And I’ve been seeing these raw vegan balls all over the place! I might have to try one or two 🙂

  36. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    You packed a heater? 😀 Aww, I love that so much! Where are you going?

    I’m a big fan of using music to get into contact with your emotions, but I must be careful not to overdo it or I’ll get depressed. 😉 I usually don’t cry, though. However, there are these two songs by Metallica – “Nothing Else Matters” and “The Unforgiven 2” – that almost get me to. Funny, I don’t listen to rock or metal a lot, but I dearly love these two songs.

  37. hungryandfrozen

    Some songs can make me cry, but unsurprisingly, it depends on my mood. ‘Hurt’ is amazing – the emotion!

    Ohhhh those truffles, how I adored them.

  38. Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets

    Mmm these look great — love the addition of crunch and flavor from the nuts!

  39. Emma

    I almost couldn’t make it down to add my comment because of the string of Cash / Nine Inch Nails comments up the way. Because….. I was about to say that Johnny Cash makes me cry, but only because I dislike him so much:(

    However, I may be crying because everyone around me seems to get SO ANGRY! when I admit I can’t stand his music. I think I’ve only met one other person who feels the same way… Alas.

    For real though, I can’t think of anything at the moment. Songs that make me sad but that I love would include ‘Why does it always rain on me?’ by Travis, ‘For Emma’ by Bon Iver (fitting, I know), and I suppose ‘If I needed you’ by Townes Van Zandt. No cryin’ though:)

  40. Camille

    “Hear You Me” by Jimmy Eat World and “Do You Realize?????” by the Flaming Lips. I am no stranger to the gets-me-every-time song.

  41. The Teenage Taste

    Wow, these truffles look delicious! They’d make a great dessert or snack!
    Thanks for sharing, Hannah!

  42. How To Tour In Magnificent Style Like The Strange Weather Gospel Choir - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] isn’t just because he plays the piano in a way that takes my breath away, or because he likes my chocolate chip cookie dough truffles*. It’s not just because he masterminds hilarious Spicks and Specks-inspired games with Daniel […]

  43. Louise

    I wanted to try these the first time round. Since I just got a new kitchen toy that absolutely requires that I try multiple new recipes, perhaps I’ll try these this weekend? And they do so totally look like rissoles as your friend noticed.

  44. Susan

    Wow! Your balls (protein cookie dough and truffles) look awesomely yummy! I can’t wait to get home to whip some up. I found you through diet, dessert and dogs blog. I’m ALWAYS looking for goodies to feed my finicky toddler. I pack healthy and weird treats in his lunch box just to freak out the teachers. So, I’ll be coming back frequently to see what other chocolatey awesomeness you can come up with. BTW, Mama I’m Coming Home by Ozzy sent me into racking sobs. It was so bad, I had to pull over on the side of the road to compose myself.
