1/2 cup dates
2 to 3 tablespoons tahini or other nut butter
1 to 2 cups coconut flakes
Favorite chocolate sauce recipe (or mix 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil with cacao powder and agave to desired taste and consistency)
1. In a blender or food processor, blend dates with enough water to make a thick paste. Then add tahini and blend until well mixed.
2. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add coconut. Stir as you go. You can add a lot or a little, depending on what outcome you would like. The more coconut you add, the stiffer they will be, making them easier to shape.
3. Make into desired shape (I made little balls). Put in freezer while you make chocolate sauce.
4. If you want them completely covered in chocolate, roll them in the chocolate sauce, or you can drizzle the sauce over them. Put in fridge or freezer to allow chocolate to set.
Erin's ThoughtsBy erin
Little, bite-sized, coconut wonders.
All ingredients are estimates and you can adjust them to your tastes. Nothing has to be exact in this recipe.
Extra special additions: you can mix some chopped nuts into the chocolate before you dip them, or you can roll them in chopped nuts, coconut, or cocoa powder for an extra special fancy treat!
I made these the other night and, by the end of the night, my boyfriend had devoured almost all of them, with the exception of the two that I ate and the one that our roommate ate.
I believe he finished off the rest of them the next day. That being said, this recipe makes quite a lot, so if you don't want to eat them all and think you might be tempted, you might want to make half the recipe!
