Gingerbread Energy Bites



1 cup pitted dates, about 12
1 cup toasted pecans
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 oz. dark chocolate to drizzle (optional)

Roughly chop the dates and blend in food processor or vitamix. Blend until small bits or paste.
Add toasted pecans, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and pulse until combined. The pecans should be in small bits-be careful not to over process or the oils will start to separate. If that happens, just dab off excess oil with a paper towel.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.
Finely chop the dark chocolate and melt in the microwave. Place the melted chocolate into a zip bag or piping bag, snip corner and drizzle over the energy balls. Let chocolate harden in the refrigerator. 
Keep stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
