1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and process until a uniform, fine texture.
2. Scoop 1 Tbs. balls and squeeze/roll together to form ball the size of large gumballs. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
3. Put oven on the lowest setting.
4. Let warm in oven for about an hour; this will dehydrate them a bit so the exteriors aren't sticky to the touch, but the date candies will be gooey inside.
5. Cool & eat!
