Makes 14
Keep refrigerated

For the salted caramel centre:
3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup smooth almond butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt

For the chocolate:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cacao powder

Generous pinch sea salt, to decorate

1) Whizz the dates in a food processor to finely chop. Add the almond butter and vanilla extract, followed by the salt and whizz to thoroughly combine. The mixture will start to come together.
2) Roll the date mixture into balls (approx the size of a marble). Refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
3) Next, make the chocolate by gently melting together the coconut oil, maple syrup and cacao powder in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Set aside to cool slightly so that the mixture thickens.
4) Dip each salted caramel and almond ball into the chocolate mixture, one at a time, ensuring they are completely covered. Place onto a plate or dish, lined with greaseproof paper and sprinkle with a little sea salt to decorate. Refrigerate for at least an hour to set.
