You said I needed treats so I made some. The trick? These little numbers are healthy. They also taste good, not dietetic or good for me. I love an excuse to play with the blender. I essentially made edible mud and rolled the mud into little balls, coating each one with unsweetened coconut. The mud is made of cocoa- yum!! and not messed with almonds and sunflower seeds and dates. Too thick so I dripped in some decent apple juice and a little soy milk. There's a foil covered tray in the fridge now that has five rows of little chocolate balls. And not a one has sugar in it.

@Happy2BeMe I tried one. They are tasty. Happy Halloween. I wonder if a toddler would be satisfied with these? They are plenty sweet.

@Corbin5 Happy Halloween without worry about eating bad things. You deserve it. Of course use any nuts you have. Even peanut butter.

@Corbin5 Good! Maybe I'll get you addicted to playing with the blender, too.

@sallypup I hope we get some trick or treaters out on this country road. Cars do go by, they could see our Halloween lights and stop. But they don't

@Jessicalynnt Basically what I said: get out ye old blender. Guess it could be a food processor. I just don't have one. Dump into blender nuts of your choice. Dump in chopped date chunks. Blend it up. Maybe too thick so there is where you will slurp in a bit of liquid- your choice of liquid. Spoon in unsweetened baker's cocoa- your choice on how much. I like dark chocolate so couple of tablespoons for me. Keep that blender going until you get a mash. Not too thin. A mash. Clean tasty mash out of blender into a bowl. Have another little bowl of unsweetened coconut ready. I lined a metal tray with aluminum foil. Roll mash into little balls- or big if you like- and roll balls into coconut and put on tray. Easy peasy. AND very much a tasty treat.

Just make sure to mention you used soy, I happen to be allergic to it and no one ever seems to think of that.

@rebelann Good idea. We just happen to have soy milk left so I used it. You can go with apple juice or other milk if you like.
