DIRECTIONS

Put all ingredients — except the coconut and mini chips — into your food processor and thoroughly mix. If you find the mixture is a bit dry, add a splash of water. Remove blade and stir in mini chips. Next roll into balls that are ¾ to of 1 inch in diameter. They don’t need to be any bigger.  Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to one week.

HAVE FUN!
