Grind cashews in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Add the dates and process again until everything is well chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and process until a smooth dough forms.
Using your hands, roll the dough into ten equal balls.
In a small bowl, microwave chocolate chips a few seconds at a time until melted (you don’t want it to burn). Transfer to a small plastic zip top bag and snip off a bit of the corner. Squeeze it out to drizzle it over the energy balls (you could also just use a spoon).
