Chocolate Fudge Balls

These bite-sized treats are fudgey, chewy, and decadent. They are quick and easy to make when you're craving chocolate! 


1/4 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup Medjool dates, pitted and chopped (about 6-7 large dates)
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 Tbsp. mini chocolate or carob chips


In a food processor or high power blender, pulse the cashews into a fine powder. Add in the pitted dates and pulse again until the mixture is well combined.

 Add in the cocoa powder and vanilla and continue to process until the dough comes together in a large chunk. Remove the ball of dough from the processor and transfer to a bowl or the countertop. 

Try to ignore the fact that it will look like a big log of you know what at this point haha.. it will be delicious I promise!

Mix the chocolate chips into the dough by hand until evenly distributed. Pinch off small pieces of the dough and roll into 1-2" balls. If the dough is too sticky to work with, try moistening your hands with water or stick the dough in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. This recipe makes about 10 bite-sized balls, but you can make more or less depending on how big you want them. Place the balls in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
