5 dried pitted mejool dates
coconut milk for soaking

1/3 cup crushed peanuts for coating

- Remove the dates from the liquid (the leftover coconut milk makes for delicious. In a food processor add the dates, cacao powder, peanut butter, and 1/3 of a cup of the leftover coconut milk. Process on high until smooth the mixture should form a ball similar to a sticky dough.
- Taking a heaping teaspoon of the mixture at a time, roll into a ball, and then roll in peanuts (you may have to press to ensure the peanuts stay).
