These little bites of sweetness and spice pack a flavor punch, thanks to Vanns Chai Spice.
Sometimes you just need a little taste of sweetness at the end of a meal to make it feel complete - not even a full-sized cookie, but one or two bites. Or you want a little something to go with your afternoon tea or coffee. That's where these date balls step in. Just two bites each (or one, if you really want to go for it), the sweetness of medjool dates combines with the nuttiness of cashews and the creaminess of coconut, all blended together with aromatic Vanns Chai Spice to create the perfect burst of flavor. Just a few minutes with your food processor, and you'll have enough portable dessert snacks to last you through the week!
