Date & Cocoa Raw Truffles

“Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine.”

This is the simplest version of date truffles. Don't hesitate to add in your favourite spices or nuts to the mix. Even for the coating, you can go for ground nuts, shredded coconut or even sesame seeds. 

  • 10-15 soft dates
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (15 grams)
  • 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil/rum/vanilla extract, optional
  • some unsweetened cocoa more to roll the truffles

1. De-seed the dates and process them with cocoa powder into a smooth paste in a food processor.

2. Depending on your dates, the paste might turn too hard or crumbly to shape. Then use a bit of oil, vanilla extract or alcohol to help it come together.

3. Take a spoonful of the paste and roll it between your palms to make balls. The size of the balls is all up to you.

4.  Roll them over unsweetened cocoa.
