Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Chocolate Healthy Height 
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Mini pretzels, broken into pieces
  • Mini chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Place the cashews, dates, and dried cherries into a medium bowl and cover with water. Let sit for about an hour to soft. Drain and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Add the cashews, dried fruit, and Healthy Height powder to a blender or food processor, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to form a paste-like dough. (If using a blender that came with a stick, use it here.)
  • Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs and cocoa powder. Chill for 15-30 minutes.
  • Use a tablespoon measuring spoon to portion into rounds. Roll into a ball. Add pretzel pieces to make legs and mini chocolate chips for eyes.
  • Store (without legs) in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. (Add legs just before serving.)
