You are going to need 2 bases to make a date ball.
Depending on the type of bar you wish to make, these are Optional:
**Dates have seeds- you will need to pit the dates prior to making these balls. They are inedible!**
For my bars, I combined 2/3 cup of Raw Almonds, 2/3 cup of Cacao Powder and 8 oz. Dates (about 1 cup) in a food processor and combine until all ingredients are fully mixed. Once the mixture has gone from a powder to a thick consistency, remove from food processor and begin rolling mix into balls. Next, place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes to firm. Once completed, remove and place in airtight container or ziploc bag. My second batch I added 1/3 cup of coconut flakes to the mix (almond joy taste) and they were absolutely amazing. I really loved making these so much I had made a few for a couple of friends who were over the moon to receive such a delicious gift!! These are so easy to make and take hardly any time at all!! I hope you enjoy them!! Happy Holidays!
