The Instructions for Delicious Chocolate Energy Balls
Just put all ingredients in the blender and mix until creamy. It is important here that you use soft dates. If the dates are too hard you have to soak them in hot water for about 30 minutes!
If the dough is a bit too dry, you can add some more water. Start with a little water first, otherwise it will become too liquid afterwards!
The dough is then used to form the little balls. I have sprinkled some coconut flakes on them.
