Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/2 Cups dates (about 230 gr. of UNPITTED ones)
  • 1 cup toasted hazelnuts
  • 4-5 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tsp. vanilla extract
  • about 150 gr. chocolate sprinkles
  • black licorice strings
  • m&m's or smarties

Directions

1.
Soak the dates in water for 15 minutes.
2.
Break them down in a food processor and when they're blended, add hazelnuts and cocoa powder and blend until a ball forms.
3.
Shape dough into balls and press liquorice strings into each one.
4.
Press two smarties as if they were eyes.
5.
Roll them in chocolate sprinkles.
6.
Chill them on the freezer for at least 3 hours. If you chill them on the fridge, wait overnight.

Note

Don't use anything but a powerful food processor to make these. No blenders and no small food processors. I had to learn that the hard way.

You can use other nuts instead of hazelnuts if you don't have them on hand.
