Cindy's Power Bar Balls
We are skiing for the weekend and I am not a fan of lodge food, so I decided to make travel-size power bars. I rolled them into balls so they are easy to eat.
They are so good that I hope there is enough for the weekend.

- 1 Cup dates, pits removed
- 1 Cup almonds
- 1 Cup walnuts
- 2 Tablespoons dried fruit (blueberried, cranberries)
- 1/2 Cup chopped dark chocolate (into chip sizes)
- 2 Tablespoons raw honey
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
- 10 Ounces all-natural chocolate for melting
In your food processor, add dates, almonds, and walnuts. Pulse 3 times. Add in dried fruit, chocolate, honey, vanilla, and sea salt and pulse about 5 times. Feel mixture, as it should be sticky. If it is too dry, add about a tablespoon of water, if not leave it alone.
Take a sauce pot and fill less than 1/2 with water and bring it to a hot temperature but not boiling. Reduce heat to low and add glass bowl with chocolate. Stir constantly using a rubber spatula until almost melted. Remove from pot and continue stirring until chocolate is melted.
Take mixture and using a small ice cream scoop and forming each ball to about 1-inch balls.
Dip and roll each ball into the melted chocolate and set on either parchment paper or a cake warming rack for the chocolate to set.
