Ingredient Notes

  1. Dark chocolate. You can use any dark chocolate or dairy-free chocolate chips.
  2. Dates. It’s imporant to use soft, moist dates in this recipe as they dates hold everything together. If your dates seem dry, soak in hot water for 15 minutes then drain well before using in the recipe.
  3. Cashews. Look for raw cashews, which should have no added oil or salt.
  4. Coffee beans. I like whole coffee beans in this recipe as they add a little crunch but you can also use ground beans. Keep in mind that if you use regular coffee beans, don’t eat the balls to close to bedtime! For any time snacking, be sure to use decaf beans.
