  • Chop the nuts into small pieces.
  • You can use any nuts and dry fruits like almonds, apricot, cherries,pistachio.
  • I used 11/2 tbsp of cocoa powder, but you can add up to 2 tbsp of cocoa powder for strong flavor.
  • If the dates is very hard to process in blender/mixie, soak it in a tbsp of hot water for 15 mins.
  • Instead of coconut flakes, you can use the cocoa powder also for rolling the balls to make it more chocolaty.
