I call these Spheres of Joy because they are like little sweet balls of energy. My mom calls them candy, so you can call them that too. But remember they are better than candy because they have no unhealthy fats or sugar in them.
If its summer where you are, you should make these because they do not require the heat of the oven. Unfortunately for me it snowed about 20 cm here a day ago so I'll be enjoying these with a warm cup of hot cocoa after a session of hot yoga.
These are so easy to make. I can't believe I did not try them sooner. All of have to do is put the ingredients in a blender, mash them all together, and form them into shapes.
Spheres of Joy
3/4 cup dates
1/2 cup cashews
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor or blender and blend until everything is chopped up and has come together
Add chocolate chips and stir them in
Shape mixture into balls
These are so wonderful; I can't wait to try some more variations!
Are there any combinations you would like to see?
