While hanging out with my friend Flo recently, I tasted her dessert truffles. Okay, I tasted more than one! They are a healthier dessert for special occasions. Two or three in a small dish make a serving.
- ½ cup raw nuts
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 12 Medjool pitted dates
- 6 Tbsp boiling hot water
- ½ tsp real vanilla
- 5 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
Place dates and hot water in a food processor until a paste form and sticks on the blade.
Add nuts, chia seeds, and 4 Tbsp cocoa. Pulse until a solid dough forms.
Use a melon ball scoop to form dough into ½-in size balls.
Place balls on a large plate or baking sheet and chill in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes until set.
Pour remaining cocoa in a shallow dish and roll the balls in the cocoa until lightly coated.
May serve right away or refrigerate in an airtight container.
