Yield: 24 balls (1 Tablespoon per ball)


•    1 cup of cashews (can substitute with walnuts and/or almonds)
•    12 pitted dates
•    ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

Place the cashews in a small bowl and add enough water to the bowl to just cover the cashews. Let the cashew soak for at least 2 hours. Once the cashews have soaked, microwave the dates for 1 minute. Add all the ingredients into a food processor/blender and mix until a smooth consistency. Form 1 Tablespoon size balls and cover each ball in a coating of your choice. Put the coated balls onto a baking sheet and place into the freezer. Remove balls 30 minutes before serving.
