“Energy ball A, on the tray, what you say? As I throw it in your plate Energy ball B, what you see? Well that’s me, I eat it up in your place” – The Gourgandines
As you may know, we became huge fans of The Hives on a glorious summer night of 2017. A few days later, we decided to quit everything, move to Sweden and start a punk band this blog was born. Coincidence ? We think not.
It’s now time for the world to discover one of our greatest works : a Hives-inspired dessert, that combines both the black&white signature look of our favorite band and its incredible energy.
They obviously don’t need them but you surely do to survive one of their gigs. So…… ladies, gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, for your greatest pleasure, behold our very own B&W Energy Balls.
