Chocolate Truffles

June 24, 2011 • Recipes, Desserts

(makes about 1 1/2 dozen truffles)

  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons organic cocoa powder
  • shredded organic coconut

Place walnuts into a food processor fitted with the "s" blade and process until very finely ground and pasty.

Add dates and cocoa powder and continue to process until well-combined.  Add more dates for a sweeter taste and process again.

Roll into small balls and place into a bowl of shredded coconut.  Make sure each ball gets coated in coconut, then place on a plate.

Can be made ahead of time and stored in a covered container in your refrigerator until ready to serve.
