- 1 cup dates (no added sweeteners)
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/2 cup raw walnuts
- 1/4 cup cocoa, good quality
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp water
- 1 tbsp cocoa (optional)
In a food processor combine walnuts ad almonds and pulse to a crumb like consistency...being sure to leave some course pieces for texture.
Remove nuts and place in a medium bowl.
Combine crumbed nuts with cocoa and vanilla, mix with a large spoon.
Add dates to the food processor and pulse several times until they are a gooey consistency.
This is very important...must be very gooey, as in a ball of goo.
Add to nut mixture along with vanilla and water.
You will need to use your hands to knead the mixture until there is one large ball...this will take a few minutes.
Shape into 1-2 inch truffles as seen in photo.
Combine additional cocoa and sprinkle on half of the truffles (optional) if you prefer, shape into small bars instead of truffles.
Cover and refrigerate. Enjoy!
