A food processor and a microwave are all you need to put together these No-Bake Dark Chocolate Chia Bites. Oats, coconut, crunchy almonds and HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Mildly Sweet Chocolate Chips are rolled together with chia seeds in this no-bake dark chocolate chia bites recipe. We love how the dark chocolate keeps these bite-sized treats together, plus packs a ton of intriguing flavor that balances out the sweetness of figs, shredded coconut and coconut oil. For another chocolate-meets-coconut treat, whip up this beginner-friendly ALMOND JOY Candy Bar Macaroons recipe. These stunning macaroons taste just like the candy bar.
Line tray or cookie sheet with wax paper.
Place almonds in bowl of food processor. Cover; process almonds until fine. Add oats, chia seeds and coconut; pulse until mixture is fine crumbs. Transfer mixture to separate bowl.
Place figs, cocoa, boiling water and almond butter in food processor bowl. Process until mixture is smooth. Add reserved almond mixture; process until well blended and holds together when pressed with fingers. Return mixture to bowl; add 3/4 cup chocolate chips, mixing until well blended. Roll mixture into 24 equal balls. Place on prepared tray. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.
Place remaining 3/4 cup chocolate chips and coconut oil in narrow, deep microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at Medium (50%) 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at Medium an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Dip balls into chocolate with fork and shake to remove excess chocolate. Place on prepared tray. Immediately sprinkle with coconut or chia seeds, if desired. Refrigerate until firm. Firm truffles may also be rolled in cocoa, if desired. Store in refrigerator in airtight container.
