  • food processor



  • Pour shelled walnuts into your food processor and run until finely ground. 
  • Add the cacao or cocoa powder to the food processor and run again until the powder is thoroughly combined with the walnuts. Pour into a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Place the pitted dates in the (now empty) food processor and run. Make sure you evenly distribute the dates in the food processor. Dates are taxing on food processors and we want not make the job harder on this beloved (and needed) appliance. Run until the dates are well chopped and form a ball in the food processor. Now, brace yourself.  This step might cause your food processor to shake. Just hold it down with your hand for your own peace of mind and it’ll all be over in a minute or two. 
  • Once the dates have formed a ball in your food processor, add the walnut/chocolate mixture to the food processor and run until everything is well combined.  The mixture may appear crumbly. That’s fine.
  • Using clean wet hands (this helps the date batter from sticking to you) smoosh and roll the date mixture into golf ball sized bites. Arrange them on a plate or cookie sheet.
  • Once done rolling the bites, pop them into the freezer for an hour to harden up a bit. After, you can garnish them by rolling them in a little extra cacao/cocoa powder, but this is an optional step! 
  • Store in an air-tight container for 7 days in your fridge or freezer ..though I doubt they will last that long.
