1 cup peanut butter (almond works good too, if you're a big spender)
1/2 cup sliced almonds
4 Tablespoons maple syrup or agave
1/4 cup chocolate OR carob chips
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup cocoa powder OR carob powder
Place everything into a big bowl and mix well. Form mixture into 1 inch balls (I like to use an oiled melon baller for this), and roll in cocoa powder. Eat immediately or allow them to harden in the fridge. Doesn't sound like much, but they are SO yummy! They also look really cute in mini paper liners. :D
** Feel free to get crazy with what you roll it in. Past rolling experiments of mine have included coconut, rainbow sprinkles, icing sugar, cocoa and cinnamon, cocoa and chili, chopped candied cherries, chopped peanuts... you get the idea!
