Chewy Lemon-Coconut Candy Balls

If you’re ever in the mood for a sweet and tangy, candy-like dessert, I highly recommend this one.

I found this No-Bake Lemon Ball recipe on Snack Girl’s site. Originally, it made 14 or more.

I’ve refigured and resized, and now you can have three super sweet candy balls anytime you want.

Ingredients

-2 T sliced almonds

-2-3 T pitted dates (about 5-6)

-twist of lemon juice

-1-2 T shredded coconut

Directions

-Toss the dates and almonds in your food processor. Process on the “shred” setting for a minute or so. Then squeeze lemon juice over the top. Process once more.

-Scoop out the mixture and form into little balls. If they aren’t sticking enough, you can can squeeze more lemon over the top or a few drops coconut oil.

-Roll the candies in the shredded coconut.

I dropped these atop a bowl of frozen vanilla yogurt, and it made for a phenomenal pairing! I’d be interested to hear what serving ideas others have.
