Add the pitted dates, pistachios, vanilla, and sea salt to a food processor. Process until a sticky cookie-dough-like mixture forms. Form the "dough" into bite-sized balls. Set aside.
Next, place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds. Carefully grab the bowl and allow it to set on the counter for another 60 seconds. When ready, stir the melted chocolate with a dry spoon. Mix until silky smooth.
Finally, dip or drizzle each pistachio date ball with the chocolate. Garnish with extra crushed pistachios and/or sea salt.
