These are actually quite a healthy treat (the main ingredients are dates and walnuts). They are also really quick and easy to make.

Before you begin place some parchment paper onto a baking try.

Put the walnuts and dates in a blender or food processor and blitz until the walnuts and dates are well combined, sticky and almost smooth in texture. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and add the cocoa powder and orange zest and rind.

Roll the mixture into balls (around the size of a walnut) and dip into the melted chocolate then place onto the parchment paper. Leave these to cool in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
