Chocolate Almond Date Balls |

So these.

I. am. obsessed.

Like waking up in the night thinking about them crazy-obsessed. In fact, I start feeling a little Seussical when I start talking about these chocolate almond date balls…

I could eat them with a fox… in a box… with a mouse… in a house…

You get the idea.

And the best part is that they are made up of three easy to find, wholesome ingredients: dates, almonds, and dark chocolate. They are ridiculously simple to make. Like, if you can push a button, you can make these.

Because that's really all it takes. Toss all of the ingredients into a food processor, hold the button until everything turns into one big blob. Then scoop out and roll the blob into bite-sized balls! The chocolate gets a little melt-y while processing, so it's best to wait until everything has cooled down before eating them– but that's quickly done in the refrigerator.

I like eating them both chilled and at room temp. So whatever works best for you!

Chocolate Almond Date Balls

Yield: 12-15 balls


  • 8 oz pitted dates
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate (the darker the better)
  • 2/3 cup raw almonds


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until all ingredients have formed one big mass, and you can no longer see large pieces of almonds.
  2. Scoop into balls and place in an airtight container (it's ok if they stick to each other a bit).
  3. Refrigerate to help them firm up or let them cool at room temperature.
  4. Best eaten chilled or at room temperature.

Don't miss a bite!
