Add in cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips. Pulse few times just to incorporate.
Using a spoon, scoop out the dough and roll between your palms to form a small bite-size ball.
Dust in cacao powder, if desired.
Place balls on a plate, or in an airtight container and refrigerate to harden.

Substitute Medjool dates with regular dates, commonly called Deglet Noor. Regular dates are smaller than Medjool dates, so you might need to use more, around 12-14 dates.
Substitute cacao powder with regular cocoa powder.
You can use cacao nibs, sweetened cacao nibs, dark chocolate chips here, or chopped dark chocolate.
You can substitute coconut flour with almond or oat flour. Note that it won't give such a nice fudgy texture. But it will be equally delicious and healthy.
