In a small bowl, whisk together the Naked PB and salt. Then, add 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of the water. Mix until the powder absorbs the water and turns crumbly/chunky, then get in with your hands and knead this mixture into a cohesive ball of dough. Add more water by the teaspoon, as needed, if the dough is crumbly after kneading. If it's sticky, add a teaspoon of Naked PB to thicken it up. See note.
Divide the mixture into 16 equal pieces, and roll them into smaller balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave (See note.). Then, coat each ball evenly in the chocolate. Use a fork to roll each ball around in the chocolate, then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Place the balls in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill before serving or moving them to the refrigerator.
You want the peanut butter mixture to form a cohesive dough. It should not be crumbly or sticky. 1/4 cup water usually does the trick, but sometimes you do need to tweak a bit to get a nice, clean dough.
To melt your chocolate chips in the microwave, cook them on high for 15-45 seconds at a time, stirring in between cooking times, until they fully melt.
Store the energy balls in the refrigerator. They will keep for a couple of weeks.
