Pulse dates in a food processor until no large pieces remain. Note: they may form a ball, and this is fine.
Add the rest of the ingredients except water and pulse until evenly combined.
Gradually blend in water, if necessary. You want to reach a consistency that holds together well, but is not overly moist.
Scoop mixture and roll into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Drizzle or dip in melted chocolate, if desired. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
