Spooky Medjool Date Spider Bites

Spooky Medjool Date Spider Bites

Ingredients

  • 16 Natural Delights® Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut (+ 1/2 cup more for coating the date balls)
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter (or your favourite nut butter)
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Preparation

  1. Add the Medjool dates to the bowl of a food processor and pulse for 15 - 20 seconds. Add the nuts and pulse until just combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go. Add the remaining ingredients. Continue to pulse, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go. When blended, the nuts should be the size of large grains of sand. 
  2. Turn the mixture onto parchment paper, and form into a roll using the parchment paper.
  3. Slice into roughly 12 pieces and roll into balls.
  4. Pour 1/2 cup of the coconut onto a clean piece of parchment paper and roll each ball in the coconut. You can also add some powdered sugar here to make the balls appear more white (totally optional).
  5. Pile the coconut covered balls into a bowl and place plastic spiders on top. Spooky!
