Frozen no bake Brownie Balls
Sounds good right? Considering Monday I posted about mashed potatoes and someone equated them to looking like a pile of poo... I figured I might as well post these bad boys. Although amazingly delicious and seriously addicting, John has lovingly nicknamed them poo balls. Yes folks I just went there. I know I should be talking about such things on a food blog... but seriously as pretty as I tried to dress them up...
Yeah they're poo balls.
Don't be discouraged though, these are oh so very very addicting. I found the recipe over at Cooking al(a) Mel and made them within a day. (her's look less poo like... why is that???)
Brownie Dough Bites
recipe from Cooking al(a) Mel
1/2 cup cashews (I nixed the walnuts and used 3/4 cup cashews instead)
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
2 T cocoa
1/2 t vanilla
1 T maple syrup or agave nectar (I've used both)
1/4 t salt (I used a little less)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
In a food processor, grind the cashews and walnuts until they are fine crumbs. Add in the dates and pulse until chunky. Add the cocoa, vanilla, maple syrup, salt and coconut. Pulse until well blended and a dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chips or pulse them in for finer pieces. Roll into bite sized balls and place in an airtight container in the freezer!
