Hold onto your sweet tooth, because these cake pops are about to redefine your dessert game in the most amazing way! These cruelty-free confectioneries prove that whole plant-based foods never tasted so deliciously delightful. And healthy to boot! Here’s why you need to make this recipe ASAP:
The dates you choose are actually important in this recipe. Too dry (such as in the pitted variety) and your dough won’t be moist enough to hold together. Too wet (probable with very fresh dates) might make the dough too wet.
If the dates are too dry, soak the dates in a cup of hot water for about 30 minutes before draining and mixing with the dates. If the dates are too wet, add more walnuts to the mix.
The best advice is to use Medjool dates with pits and try to use newly bought dates for this recipe. Ones that have been sitting around for a while tend to be on the drier side. Medjool dates are a better choice than Mazafati or the smaller Deglet dates.
Not a huge date fan? No problem! There are a number of fun and festive dried fruits that can be substituted for half of the dates (up to 1/2 cup) to make these vegan cake balls. Just make sure there is at least Here’s a list of our favorites:

If you don’t have time to buy a kit, you could fashion one from a sturdy cardboard box. Just punch some holes across the top (preferably two rows at least a few inches apart) that will fit the sticks you have on hand (maybe some clean popsicle sticks?). Place something heavy inside the box from to keep the entire thing from flipping over once you add the decorated cake pops.
