    1. Combine almonds and agave nectar in a food processor or blender; blend until mixture begins to form a ball on the blade, scraping sides if needed, 1 to 2 minutes. Chill in the fridge until marzipan is firm enough to roll, about 1 hour.
    2. Combine dates, hazelnuts and cocoa powder in a food processor or blender; blend until texture is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
    3. Roll marzipan into a long rope. Flatten into a thin sheet using a rolling pin. Roll cocoa mixture into a long rope; place in the centre of the marzipan sheet and roll up to seal. Cut the roll into 3 pieces.


    Cover the cigars in melted chocolate and sprinkle with crushed almonds or hazelnuts.
