Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Balls

These are a "softer" ball, more like chocolate fudge !!!!  

3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (I actually used about 3.5 - 4 oz of a 70% chocolate bar)
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup raw peanuts
1/4 cup Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 banana
1/4 cup date syrup  

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until all the ingredients are well combined.

Form into balls and put in freezer to firm up.  Each day these balls tend to get more flavorful.  I actually stored them in the freezer, but took some out to warm up to room temperature before eating them.  They stayed firm in the freezer, but I liked the taste of them at room temperature - they were more like fudge at room temperature.

I've started using the  Farberware Cookie Scoop for forming the snack balls, instead of using my hands.  It is not as messy and the balls are a more uniform size.

My favorite food processor is the KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
