These were actually a flopped Raw Cake Pop trial. They were still so good, that I knew I had to do something with them. I have been snacking on them the last several days and have to restrain myself from eating all of them at once. :)

Raw Cacao Snack Balls
Makes 8 balls
1 cup nuts, soaked 4 hours (I used almonds, pecans and walnuts)
6 dates, pitted
2 tablespoons nut butter (I used cashew butter)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cacao/cocoa powder
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 teaspoons salt (add more if your nut butter is not salted)
1. Drain and rinse the nuts. In a food processor, using the metal S blade, process the nuts until they are a fine meal.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until it becomes a smooth paste. Take a heaping tablespoon and form into balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes (if you can stand to wait). Serve.
Note: If your dates are not soft, soak them for 4 hours as well.
