|There were more, but we ate them :)|
8 Medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips*
Shredded coconut for sprinkling on top
Pit the dates and mash up well with a fork in a bowl. Add in the almonds and stir as best as you can. Continue combining with your hands. Roll into 12-14 balls. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave (stir every 30 seconds until melted). Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Dip the balls in the chocolate with a fork, shaking off the excess, and place on the parchment paper. Sprinkle with the shredded coconut.
I place mine in the freezer so the chocolate will set faster and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
*I used dairy-free 63% cacao chips. A higher percentage equals a darker chocolate, with a lower sugar content.
