Chocolate Almond Coconut Date ball Recipe

What you need:

1 lb. or about 4 Cups of pitted Dates
1 Cup Almonds
1 Cup Coconut
1/2 Cup Cocoa powder

Put Almonds into food processor with blade and mix.

Now add pitted Dates, Coconut and Cocoa powder.

Blend again. Your machine may feel like it is struggling. So give it breaks or just pulse. Keep blending/or pulsing until it starts to look like this below.

Form into small balls with hands. If hands get to sticky wash and dry them, then continue rolling. I have to wash and dry my hands several times to roll them all smooth.

You can leave them this way or Take a bit of Coconut and Cocoa powder and roll them into this.

They look like Bon Bons. You could even dip them into melted Chocolate with toothpicks and cool them on wax paper in the Fridge. I did not do that. Put them into the freezer to become firm. Take out when serving or eat strait from freezer. They get firm, but do not freeze like ice. So it is a great cool treat, snack or dessert.
