A delectable combination of dates, cocoa, saffron, and nuts is too amazing to resist! Exotic, so easy to make, and your new go-to dessert.


1/2 cup pistachios
1 cup dates
1/2 cup almonds
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 big pinch of saffron (ground in a mortar and pestle or with the end of a rolling pin)

  4. Roll 1 inch balls out of the date mixture
  5. Roll the date balls in the ground pistachios until they are fully coated.
  6. Serve alongside Tahmina tea and enjoy!
  7. Store in a container in the fridge or at room temperature.
