step 1

Place the dates in a medium bowl and cover them with boiled water. Allow them to soak for approximately 20 minutes, or until they become soft and tender.

step 2

In a food processor, combine the soaked pitted dates, ground almonds, fresh orange juice, and cinnamon.

step 3

Mix the ingredients thoroughly at high speed for approximately one minute until they are fully combined into a dough-like sticky paste.

step 4

Using a tablespoon, scoop a small portion of the mixture (approximately 20 grams) and gently shape it into a ball between your palms.

step 5

Cut the chocolate into pieces and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 60-90 seconds, stirring in between. If needed, add another 30 seconds, being careful not to burn the chocolate.

step 6

Take each ball and submerge it in the melted chocolate until fully coated. Then, carefully transfer them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

step 7

Generously garnish with delectably roasted nuts, then refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes to achieve the perfect texture and flavor infusion.
