Hazelnut chocolate bombs

Recently a friend gave me a pound of California hazelnuts. What to do with them? I hit upon making no-bake hazelnut chocolate bombs.

Whiz equal parts (by volume) hazelnuts and dates in a food processor. I used about a cup of each. Add cocoa, and, if you have them, some chocolate chips. I added enough Grandma’s molasses to make them hold together into bombs. As the mixture becomes sticky, it will form up into a big ball in the food processor. Some brandy would have been a nice addition, but I didn’t have any. I rolled the bombs in date sugar to make them less sticky. I’m storing the dough in the refrigerator and will roll them into balls as needed.

You could use any kind of nuts. They take no time at all to make. They’re very high calorie — about the same as ice cream, I’d guess — but they’re more nutritious than ice cream and even have a lot of fiber. And, in spite of all the calories, they’re a better form of carbs than cookie-cookies.
