Another great find from! Both WW friendly, gluten free and even vegan!  I made them for some friends with food allergies. snow balls


  • 15 pitted dates

  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 cup whole roasted unsalted almonds

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 2 tbsp water (or more if needed)

  • 3 tbsp confectioner's sugar


Add almonds to your food processor (or since I don't have one :( I used my coffee grinder)  and pulse until ground. Add dates, cocoa powder, honey, and water. Mix until it forms a sticky mass. If it seems too dry, add a little water, 1 tsp at a time. Wash hands and using damp hands (keep sink running)measure 1 tbsp and roll into a ball with the dough. Set balls on parchment paper.

Put confectioner's sugar in a bowl. Roll balls in your hand and then roll in sugar.

Can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
