OK, so the photo doesn’t do these morsels of goodness any justice. They are so delicious I’d rather eat them up then spend time staging a gorgeous photo. Now that they are in my belly, I regret not taking the time to orchestrate a beautiful photo to entice you to make these!
Next time I make these, I will be sure to update the photo! Until then. Here’s the recipe!
1/3 cup walnuts (soaked and dehydrated)
7-8 medjool dates
2 Tbsp cocoa
2-3 drops doterra peppermint essential oil (you could use peppermint extract: expermiment with amount to suit your taste)
1/2 tsp salt (real salt, Himalayan, or Celtic)
I use my nutribullet to pulse everything into a smooth consistency. You can use a vitamix blender or food processor.
Roll into balls and put in freezer. Mine have yet to make it to the freezer as I usually polish them in one sitting. I make them when I crave chocolate.
Optionally, you can decorate each ball with a sprinkle of coconut.
If you are making them to share, then you may want to triple the recipe.
