Chocolate Decadence

These easy-to-make cocoa nuggets are a sweet, chocolately treat for your taste buds without any added sugars or, even worse, artificial sweeteners!  These are truly a guilt-free treat!
With just 3 simple ingredients (or 4, if you decide to use a small slice of a banana to increase sweetness), you can mix up these little nuggets in no time.
1 C walnuts or pecans
1 C dates
1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
**optional – one 2″ slice of banana**
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until thoroughly blended (about a good 20-30 seconds).  With your hands, form into 1-2″ sized balls, place in a container and cover.
Chill for at least 30 minutes.
I enjoy these without the banana, but my kids love these with a bit of banana added. You could add any other fruit/berry as long as it’s a small piece – you don’t need much!
