This recipe is so yummy and equally easy! This is a throw-together/all-natural fun recipe. This Quinoa Haystack Recipe is wonderful for get togethers, parties and the Holiday Season (More Holiday Recipes can be found here).

For a party I like to make these in the one-inch size and serve them in mini muffin cups. These are the perfect two-bite snack for guests.

These bites are rich with flavor and contain only natural ingredients with a ton of health benefits. Enjoy these chocolate dense Haystack Bites!
