This is such an easy treat. You just throw everything into a blender and blend! How much easier can it get? (It can’t).
I have a few tips though.
#1: If you like your sweets really sweet, up the amount of dates to taste.
#2: Increase/decrease cocoa powder as you like it.
#3. Leave the vanillas be or else it’ll be awful.
Kidding. You can use all vanilla extract if you want but I highly recommend using vanilla powder. You’ll love it, trust me.
Now I know some of you are going to want cup measurements. Frankly, I can’t give you exact volume measurements because it’s pretty much impossible to find it. But roughly there’s: 1 1/2 cup dates and 3/4 cup nuts. Roughly being the key word here.
One more thing: these are addictive. Doesn’t matter if you like neither dates or nuts. Just try one.
