Choc caramel date bites
3/4c coconut oil
1/4c cocoa powder
1t vanilla essence
2T extra coconut oil
1/4c coconut flour
Place dates in a jug or glass bowl and cover with boiling water for 30mins to soften.
Process the dates, vanilla, extra coconut oil and salt in a food processor until smooth. Put into a bowl, cover and put in the freezer for about 30mins until firm (to roll).
Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan, add the shifted cocoa powder and mix well. Leave off the heat to thicken slightly.
Line a tray with baking paper. Put the flour in a small bowl. Roll out the date mixture into balls (one tablespoon full sized). Using a spoon, dip the balls into the chocolate mixture, place on tray to set. I also drizzle any remaining chocolate over the balls on the tray to make sure I get a nice thick coating.
Freeze for at least 10mins and store in an airtight container in the freezer.
Makes about 16.
Note: the coating may appear whitish when set, don't worry! This is just the coconut oil.
