3 Tbsp unsweetened Cocoa powder or raw Cacao powder
2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/4 Tsp fine-grain Sea Salt

OKAY, HERE WE GO!...
Place the pitted dates in a food processor and process until a ball forms
Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor (hemp hearts/seeds, cocoa/cacao powder, coconut, coconut oil, salt, lime essential oil, and chocolate, if using) and process until combined and near smooth. The dough should be sticky and shouldn’t crumble when you form a ball. If it’s not sticky enough, add 1 to 3 teaspoons of water gradually, processing after each little addition
Lightly wet hands if needed, shape the dough into balls and place them on a lined plate
Roll each ball in Shredded Coconut until coated
Freeze the balls for 20 minutes until firm or simply enjoy right away! Keep refrigerated
