  • Ingredients

    • 2½ cups pecans, lightly toasted (300 degree oven, spread out on a cookie sheet, for about 10 minutes, you'll will smell them, toasty and wonderful. Careful not to burn them, it will happen quickly!)
    • ¼ cup cacao powder (unsweetened & high quality...makes a big difference in the taste here, I love Dagoba)
    • 15-20 large Medjool dates, pitted, or about 8-9 oz. NOTE: don't use other date varieties...these are the Cadillacs of the date world, much softer and more caramel flavors than other varieties.
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • ½ cup dried cranberries
    • Optional Add In's: coconut flakes, mini chocolate chips, any dried fruit
