Add dates and blend until mixture starts to come together
Add date soak water/coconut oil and blend until the consistency is like a fudgy paste.
Roll mixture into bite size balls and roll in desiccated coconut.
*If you use dried dates, soak them in hot water for 5-10 minutes to soften, then drain. Keep some of the water to use to adjust bliss ball consistency. This will ensure your bliss balls bind together. Refrigerate. Can also be frozen.
