Handcrafted chocolate balls

Raw soft nutty coconut indulgence in the inside and dark smooth chocolatey on the outside.

Gluten free, Refined Sugar Free, Soy Free, Vegan Friendly, Handcrafted


1 cup pecan nuts

1 cup dates, pitted (Soaked beforehand)

1/2 cup designated coconut

1 Tbsp coconut oil

Dash of Himalayan salt

Dark chocolate 85% (I used CocoaFair)


Place the pecan nuts in a food processor or a powerful blender (food processors work better) and blend until they have a crumbly texture.

Add the dates, designated coconut, salt and coconut oil, blend again. Roll into bite sized balls. Set aside.

In a pot, add boiling water 3/4 from the top. Place a glass bowl on top. Add the dark chocolate, allow to melt. Do not stir too much.

Place a toothpick inside each ball and dip in the chocolate. Place the dipped ball onto a grease proof paper.

Pull out the toothpick and store in a cool dry place. The fridge would be a good option during summer months.
