Mexican Chocolate Date Truffles (Vegan Energy Balls)

Vegan Chocolate Date Energy balls are easy to make. hey are no-bake, no-cook and are perfect when you are short on time. I used mixed nuts with almonds, cashews, pistachios and peanuts, but you can use any one nut or your favorite combination of nuts.
