Place whole nuts in food processor first and blend until they are a nut meal texture. Empty into bowl and set aside. Next place dates in processor and blend until they loose their date shape ~ Mix all ingredients together in food processor; pulse and then blend well. The mixture should have the consistency of peanut butter (not chunky!). Form mixture into one-inch balls, roll in desired topping or leave plain and place on a cookie sheet; put tray in the refrigerator for one hour before serving.
