Happy Cinco De Mayo!

No Mojitos today, but these balls will help fill those shoes. Zesty Lime, fresh mint, nuts and seeds and alcohol if you like. Snack on these every day! No Bake, raw, and delicious.

These zesty fresh snack balls are very addictive, especially when fresh as the mint is fresh for the first 2 days. Add less or more mint to taste. These bites are just mildly sweet with just enough dates. Add more sweet to taste.

  2. Corrin Radd says:

    Made these today and enjoyed them, though I tripled the dates to get them sweet enough for my sweet tooth.

  3. Kristina says:

    Tasty, but I’m hoping the rum mellows out just a little as they sit. 🙂

    1. Richa says:
