Place brazil nuts in half a cup of water and soak for 30 minutes. After soaking combine brazil nuts, chopped up pitted dates, carob powder, zest of a lime and juice in a food processor. Pulse until well mixed and is able to form balls. For extra sweetness you can add Agave Nectar here and pulse a few seconds more.

I love these. I omit the lime juice and use walnuts instead of Brazil nuts because I have never been fond of Brazil nuts. 

Biancarose is right: these are so much better when eaten frozen!
