KISS Spicy Chocolate Cherry Snack Bites

Time20 mins
Servings: 20 snack bites


  • Food processor


  • 1 cup roasted, unsalted whole almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups Natural Delights Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cups dried cherries
  • 2 tbsp Navitas Naturals cacao powder (if needed, regular cocoa will sub fine)
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Soak pitted Medjool Dates in hot water for 3-5 minutes; drain.
  • While Medjool dates are soaking, place almonds in food processor for 10-15 seconds until broken in small pieces (see above photo).
  • Add drained Medjool dates (it's okay if they are fairly wet), cacao powder and cayenne. Blend for 30-45 seconds until well incorporated. If ingredients are sticking to side or bottom, add 1-2 teaspoons of water and process until well incorporated.
  • Add cherries and process for additional ~20 seconds. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • Using your hands, roll mixture into 1 inch size balls and place on parchment paper.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week and enjoy with a glass of MIA ROSA Dolce Rosso. Cheers!
