Spicy chocolate pop ‘em balls

BT Toronto | posted Thursday, Jan 9th, 2014

Spicy and good. The antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and the heart-friendly cayenne give these balls quite a health punch for a dessert. And they are rich in almonds, too.

Spicy chocolate pop ‘em balls

Makes about 10 balls

Time 10 to 15 minutes


  • 1 cup (250 mL) pitted dried dates
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) pure cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper
  • apple juice as needed


  1. Place the dates, almonds, coconut, cocoa powder and cayenne pepper in a food processor, and blend until fairly smooth.
  2. Add just enough apple juice to make everything stick together. Form into balls, using 1 to 2 tbsp (15–30 mL) of mix for each. Allow to harden in the fridge.
