Recipe by Chef Ronnie Fishman, words by Devon Scoble.
1 cup natural peanut or almond butter
1 cup Medjool dates
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp salt
1/2 cup cannabis coconut oil
3/4 cup brown rice crisp cereal, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate
Add nut butter, dates, water, vanilla, salt, and infused coconut oil to a food processor. Blend ingredients on high until a thick paste has formed.
In a separate bowl, stir hemp seeds and rice crisps into the nut paste.
Melt dark chocolate using a double boiler. Mix frequently to ensure chocolate does not clump or burn.
Roll hemp balls into the melted chocolate, place on a tray and freeze for 45 minutes.
