The perfect healthy dessert you don't have to feel guilty about. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo, Vegan and No added or refined sugar.
Serves: aprox. 14 cups
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 22 Dates (pitted and soaked)
  • ¼ Sea Salt
  • 4-5 Dark Chocolate Bars (I like Vita Organics, Hu Kitchen, Lilly's)
  • Coconut oil (for chocolate thinning)
  1. Ahead of time - soak the dates (pitted) in water for a minimum of 6 hours. In or out of the fridge.
  2. Once dates are ready to be used, drain the water and add them to a food processor blending them until they form a soft mixture that will look like a nougat color. (2-3 minutes)
  3. Then in intervals add the pumpkin seeds, coconut and sea salt into the food processor and blend until all ingredients are broken down and blended well. This will require you to open it up a few times and scrape the sides.
  4. Scoop mixture into a container and freeze for half an hour to an hour. If the mixture is still too sticky to form into balls, then freeze for longer.
  5. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler on medium heat or a microwave. To thin the chocolate and make it easier to pour you can use a few teaspoons of coconut oil (1-3).
  6. Line a cupcake pan with foil cupcake liners. Spoon the melted chocolate into the lined cups, filling each about one-quarter full. Place in the freezer to set, about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Take a heaping teaspoonful of the Samoas mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten slightly and place on top of the set chocolate in a foil liner. Repeat with remaining samoas mixture.
  8. Scoop the remaining melted chocolate on top of the samoas mixture in the cups, being sure to cover it completely. This is where you may need to add coconut oil to your chocolate mixture to thin it out a bit before pouring it on top.
  9. Tap the pan on the countertop to even out and smooth the chocolate. Place in the freezer until set, about 1 hour. Store these Samoas Cups in the freezer or refrigerator in a sealed container until ready to eat.
