- 8 dates, lightly soaked
- 4 oz cocoa butter
- 2 oz coconut oil
- 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder + more for dusting
If your dates are stale, soak them in water for up to 30 minutes and dry to make sure they’ll blend.
Add the cocoa butter and coconut oil into a food processor and blend until soft and emulsified. Add the dates and sweetener and continue to process until the dates have formed a paste. Add in the cocoa powder and blend until mixed.
Move to the refrigerator for 10 minutes to stiffen the mixture. Once it’s cooled, scoop and roll the chocolate into 1-inch balls, and roll in a plate of cocoa powder to dust. Keep these at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
