These are satisfying little candy bites. One is enough but you’ll probably eat 2 or 3. They are great to throw in for that candy treat in your school lunch or brown bag at work. Leave a little note with it saying “I love you”1/8 c pecans 1/2 c almonds 1/2 c dates (Measured by squishing them down in the cup before chopping) 1/8 c raisins 1 Tbls coconut (this might be more like 1/4 c. I wrote 1 tbs but that doesn’t seem like much and I can’t remember what I really did 🙂 4 tsp cocoa (I used dutch processed) 1 Tbs coconut oil 1 or more drops of mint extract. Most cheap extract might us up to a lid full, but I have some supper potent mint extract so 1 drop is enough. I do really like it on the strong mint side but be careful, you can always add but you can’t take back out if you put too much.
I use my food processor to grind the nuts and dates and raisins into a type of paste. Add everything else and blend well. Roll into small balls. Then I like to roll the balls in finely ground nuts and coconut. I find it best to store in the freezer but they do not need refrigeration.
