In a food processor pulse apricots, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds and cocoa powder until coarsely blended. Add in sweetener and vanilla if using. Then process continuously until mixture forms a “dough” and starts to clump together. Remove and form into 1 inch diameter balls. In a small plate sprinkle your topping of choice. Roll each ball in the topping. Place on a serving dish or chill until ready to serve. Makes about 20 balls
