Chocolate Date Balls

INGREDIENTS:

  • 10 medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ cup pecans (but you can use any kind you like)
  • ¾ cup almond meal (or any other finely ground nuts)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract (optional – I just wanted to add more chocolate flavor)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt (more to taste)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Soak your dates in hot water for a few minutes to soften.
  2. Drain and squeeze out excess water.
  3. Place your pecans, almond meal, and cocoa in a food processor until finely ground.
  4. Add the dates, vanilla, chocolate extract and sea salt, and pulse until a thick, sticky dough ball forms.
  5. Remove the dough ball from the food processor – taste and add any other flavors you want.
  6. Roll the dough into small balls – you should be able to get 18-24.
  7. Roll the balls in toppings of your choice like cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles, or flaked coconut,
  8. Place on a baking sheet and store in the freezer until they are hard enough not to stick together. Transfer to an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator or freezer.
