  1. In a large bowl, add your pitted dates. Cover with 2 cups warm water and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry to remove excess liquid.
  2.  Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add your cashews, almonds and walnuts and blend until a crumbly texture remains. Do not over blend.
  4. Add your softened dates and blend well, regularly scraping down the sides to ensure the mixture is fully incorporated.
  5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of your chocolate chips and your mix-ins of choice and blend once more until just combined.
  6. Transfer the trail mix bliss bar batter to the lined baking dish and press firmly in place. Refrigerate.
  7. Once bars are firm, cut into 8 pieces. Melt your remaining chocolate chips and drizzle over the bars.
