    This was what I needed. I guess my dates were smaller than yours, because it wasn't quite wet enough to roll, and not quite sweet enough for my taste, so I added 1 tablespoon of honey, and that worked well. I also rolled half in coconut flakes, and only used half the cocoa powder. All in all great! - 6/13/13
