Sweet treat

Hey there friends!  I've got a super-fast, no bake, delicious treat for you today.  I made this last night to go with some red wine and it was soooo good!
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.
