  1. In your food processor combine the dates, cashews and coconut cream (I had to do this in 2 batches given the amount) and blend until dates are smooth and cashews in are fine pieces

  2. Place a medium sized pot on the stove on low heat and transfer your cashew-date-coconut mixture to the pot

  3. Add the vanilla extract, butter/ghee, cacao butter, cocoa powder and sea salt to the pot

  4. Allow the butters to melt and stir to combine the ingredients

  5. Once well combined turn off the heat and add the finely shredded coconut to the mix

  6. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking tray/sheet

  7. Form 1-1.5" balls with your hands and place on the parchment lined baking tray (see images)

  8. Place the tray in the fridge and allow to cool for approximately 2 hours

Recipe Notes

I prefer these served cold, straight from the fridge. You can also let them come to room temp to enjoy.
