Ingredients
  

  • 16 oz pitted dates
  • 2 TBS coconut oil
  • cup natural peanut butter, no added ingredients
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine dates and coconut oil. Blend on high for 3-5 minutes until dates are smooth and form a paste like ball. The coconut oil with melt during this process.
  • Scoop the date mixture into small, truffle like balls. I used a melon baller.
  • Using a small spoon, drip about a 1/2 tsp of peanut butter on top.
  • Freeze the balls for about 30 minutes until the peanut butter is hardened.
  • Before pulling the dates from the freezer, melt the dark chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals.
  • Drip about 1 teaspoons worth of chocolate over each ball. It will drip down, but won’t cover the entire thing.
  • Refrigerate until chocolate is set and hardened. Keep refrigerated until 30 minutes before serving. They are more gooey at room temperature, but also delicious cold.
