Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut Date Balls

What You'll Need:
1 box dates, pitted
1 c. dark chocolate chips
1/2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
almonds (optional)

What To Do:
Mash dates and shredded coconut together (by hand or using a food processor). Roll in to balls (should make about 35 balls; I used a weight scale and measured each one to be about 15g). Place dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl, microwave for about a minute (or until almost melted); mix with fork until smooth.  Dip each ball in the chocolate and place on cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Place in fridge until chocolate is set, about one hour. Store in air tight container in the fridge.

*Coated hands with a bit of organic coconut butter before rolling the balls 
*Optional: place an almond inside of each ball before dipping in chocolate 
*Optional:sprinkle a bit of sea salt on top for added flavor
