For the inside filling, remove the pits or stones in the dates and add to a food processor along with the other ingredients for the inside filling and blend until smooth and like a healthy chocolate spread.
Using 2 tea spoons carefully shape into 8-10 small balls approx 2cm in diameter.
Wash the food processor and remove the stones or pits from the dates for the outer layer and add to the food processor along with the almonds, salt and vanilla extract.
Carefully shape and flatten the outside filling into small rectangle approx 4cm squared and place the inside filling inside. Fold over the outside layer so it encompassed and covers the full inside layer and carefully roll into a smooth ball. You want that the inside filling is totally covered by the outside layer.
Roll in the cacao nibs so its well coated. Repeat with the remaining mixture
