Fudge Babies

I've waited for-EVER to try out these delicious treats (Chocolate Covered) Katie has been talking about for a while now, and I can't tell you why! They are phenomenally tasty AND easy to make -- is there a better combo??!? I think not!

I started with, um...maybe 10 dates (I used fancy medjool) and a handful of roasted, salted peanuts -- ok, I could have been better at measuring my ingredients this time.

After blending this, I added 2 Tbsp cocoa and blended some more.

This is what it all looked like blended:

Looks kinda like dirt but it does not taste like it at all which is great news if you don't care for the way dirt tastes.

I rolled 'em up into balls and was hurrying up so much cause I was hungry that I spilled cocoa

Yes, woe is me, cause the spill only served to delay my food-to-mouth application time.

And -- voilà!!! Who could resist these?????


Not I!  (*37.9 seconds later)


Try them and learn for yourselves how the size of these is inversely proportional to their deliciousness which is, in turn, inversely proportionate to their life spam. =|  Sad fate for them, lucky for the rest of us!  ;)



  1. Awwwwww Mara, you just made my day!!
    Can I feature you in a future post? Your picrures are so pretty. I love the lighting :)

    (Oh, and definitely worthy of 7 entries in the giveaway!!)

  2. YUM! I love raw balls! They don't last long in my house, either!

  3. These look great. I've seen them many times but never tried to make my own. Think I will attempt it tomorrow :)
