Soak the nuts in water for about an hour. Drain.
In a food processor, combine all ingredients and blend to a thick paste. If the mixture doesn't stick together when trying to roll a ball, add a teaspoon of water and blend again. Take about a teaspoon of the paste and roll into balls. Coat with either desiccated coconut, ground pistachios or almonds or cocoa powder. Repeat until all of the mixture is used up. Keep in the fridge or freezer. Take out 5-10 minutes before serving.
