  • Turn the food processor on and allow it to do all the work for you. If you need to stop to scrape down the sides, go right ahead. Continue to food process the mixture until a dough like ball is formed.

  • Once the dough is formed, remove from procesor and take either a 1 tsp or 1 tbsp (depending on the size you want) amount and roll into balls. You can leave as is or you can roll in some coconut shreds as shown. The balls will be quite sticky so I do recommend rollling them in some sort of a powder/shreds. Feel free to use cacao powder, coconut shreds, pulsed nuts, powdered sugar or whatever else you want!
