Here is my new chocolate truffle recipe. They are super easy and yummy and should help with those nasty sugar cravings!
They have been taste tested and approved by: Gideon (although he likes just about everything), Aurora (who is in a very picky stage), Caleb (who is very suspicious of “healthy versions” and usually doesn’t like them), my mom and dad and myself.
Ok here it is, you need:
- unsweetened dark chocolate and/or cocoa powder
- coconut (optional)
- coconut butter (optional)
Puree 1 cup of dates and add melted unsweetened chocolate or cocoa powder to taste. (One square of unsweetened chocolate was a good amount, one and a half would be great too just a bit richer) mix well with a fork or continue to puree (my blender/food processor is not one of those awesome ones so I used a fork to mix it up well) Roll into bite size balls and coat in cocoa powder or unsweetened coconut.
I made these 3 different ways to test them out and compare them.
- Unsweetened chocolate was richer and more chocolatey
- Cocoa powder with about a tablespoon of coconut butter (homemade)
- Cocoa powder
All were great so it would just depend on what you had on hand. 🙂
Hope you like them!! They keep well in the freezer but if your freezer gets really cold try the fridge instead.
