No Bake Chocolate Espresso Bites

These no bake chocolate espresso bites are the perfect snack when you want something sweet but don’t want to reach for the candy bowl. Dates not only provide a natural sweetness that tastes too good to be true, but are good sources of fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
