These addictively crispy, chewy balls are full of my favorite combinations: dark chocolate-cranberry, honey-salt, and nut butters with a crunchy texture.

Note: I used Kashi® 7 Whole Grain Puffs Cereal because I like the added nutty flavor and varied texture of the whole grains. To easily make these gluten-free, use gluten-free puffed rice cereal. To make these vegan, substitute brown rice syrup for the honey and source vegan chocolate.
