Chocolate Hazelnut Bites
12 medjool dates, soaked in hot water for about 5 minutes
1 c hazelnuts (Skins can be on! I get mine at Trader Joe's)
8 T cocoa
7 T unsweetened shredded coconut
After soaking dates, process them in a food processor until they start to break down and form a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to process until everything comes together and can be easily rolled into a ball. As you can tell from the picture, I don't process them until the nuts are completely broken down- I leave them a little chunky. Process longer for smoother bites and shorter for chunkier ones. Roll into balls and store in the freezer. They are awesome straight from the freezer!
