Peppermint Chocolate Balls

Alexa Brown

I love Christmas.  Everything about it.  I am sure you are around lots of unhealthy treats everywhere you go!  I know I am and it's so tempting to eat everything.  I highly recommend trying these delicious treats that are good and good for you:)


1/3 cup raw almonds

7 pitted medjool dates

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup crushed peppermint



1. Put almonds in a food processor or blender and chop into small pieces.

2. Add the dates and blend together.

3. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract. peppermint extract, and coconut oil. Blend for 2 minutes.  Add a couple drops of water if necessary to help it move.

4. Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few final times to combine well.

5. Take a large spoon of the mixture in your hand and roll into a ball. The coconut oil will soften and it can be a little messy! While it is still warm press into the peppermint.

6. Allow the finished bites to set in the fridge for 30 minutes and enjoy!!
