Mix the crushed dates with the crushed coconut and add a little water until you get a homogeneous rectangular shape. Cut the rectangle into 35-40 parts and form small balls with each share.

Put the cocoa coconut balls in the fridge so that the coating hardens (even if we already want to taste…!)

Tasting

These little balls can be a tasty snack in the morning or in the afternoon.
They can deliciously enter into the composition of a “gourmet plate” of miniature desserts, accompanied by a hot beverage like this delicious hot chocolate, and like this steamed cake chocolate hazelnuts during your festive meals (Valentine’s Day for example!)…

I thank Marion Eberschweiler for the inspiration I found for my little cocoa coconut balls in her video about the raw bountys: Bounty-inspiration-balls-cocoa-coco.
