Ingredients
Servings: balls
Instructions
  1. Puree dates and pecans in a food processor until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Form the mixture into 12 one-inch balls and place the balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Place the tray with the balls on it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, make the chocolate. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk in cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until everything is smooth and chocolatey.
  5. Remove the balls from the freezer and, using a fork or toothpick, dip each ball into the chocolate and place it back into the tray. Once every ball is coated in chocolate, put them back into the freezer for another 30 minutes. Take them out just before serving. Store them in the freezer.
