Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls

A friend of mine shared these with our family on an outing one day.  I didn't think for a second that my kiddos would eat one let alone love them!  They are super easy to make and very tasty.  They curb that sweet tooth desire, but are more on the healthy side!  The original recipe comes from here.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls (Lara Bar Copycat)

 2/3 cup pitted dates
A handful of chocolate chips or Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup cashews (or another nut, like almonds.)
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
A tiny pinch of salt (can be omitted)

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or a blender.  Scrape out and knead together with your hands.  Gently fold in chocolate chips.  Roll into tiny little balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Freeze for about a half an hour.  Bag up cookie balls in freezer bag and store in freezer until ready to eat. 

Try not to eat the whole bag!
