Cashew Chocolate Snowballs

I made these last night for a potluck dinner, and they got great reviews! They’re the perfect bite of sweetness at the end of a meal.

1/2 cup dried, unsweetened coconut flakes, divided
1 cup cashews
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 dates, pitted
1/2 cup raisins

Combine 1/4 cup coconut flakes, cashews, cacao powder and salt in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Add vanilla, dates and raisins and process until the mixture begins to “turn over” and ¬†holds together. Shape spoonfuls into balls and roll in remaining 1/4 cup coconut flakes. Makes about 18. Refrigerate or freeze.
