In a food processor or high powered blender, mix together the dates, coconut, and vanilla extract until it's evenly mixed and forms a ball.
On a sheet of parchment paper, form the mixture into 12 circles. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke a hole in the center of each cookie. Transfer to the freezer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips + coconut oil in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time until the mixture is smooth.
Carefully remove each cookie from the parchment paper and dip the bottom in the melted chocolate.
Let set on the parchment paper and drizzle with more chocolate on top and sprinkle with sea salt. Store in the freezer until ready to consume!
