Christmas Jingle Bells

The other day I took some date balls to a Christmas party. I renamed them Jingle Balls for the occasion. Everyone seemed to like them, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.
Ingredients
  Dates 400 Gram (1 Packet)
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Cocoa 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Ground flax seed 2 Tablespoon
  Sliced almonds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Coconut 1
Directions

First open a 400 gram packet of dates and chop them all up.
Put them in a pot with half a cup of water and cook them until they’re all mushy. This takes about seven or eight minutes.
Then add a teaspoon of vanilla, half a cup of cocoa, two tablespoons of ground flax seed and half a cup of sliced almonds.

Mix well.

Put some coconut onto a plate.
Put a spoonful of the mixture onto the coconut. Cover it with coconut and then roll it into a ball.

You should be able to make about 35 to 40 balls – depending on how big your balls are of course.

And you can keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to eat them.

Jingle balls. Delicious.
