#12 Mint Chocolate ORBS (Organic Raw Ball of Sweetness)

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.
