This is an amazing treat for any occasion or when you feel like you need some sweetness in your life. The truffles are healthy, naturally sweet and so satisfying. The texture is wonderfully rich and so chocolatey. These little cocoa balls will be the star of your party!
They are inexpensive, quick and easy to make. I highly recommend and can’t wait to make them again!
50-100g of your favourite nuts (I used almonds)
4 tbsp of good quality cocoa, plus 2-3 tbsp for dusting (I used Green & Black’s)
a pinch of salt
3-4 tbsp of milk
Method: soak the dates in water for about 15 minutes. Mix the nuts with cocoa and then blend them a little. Add the dates to the nut and cocoa mixture and blend again. Add the milk. Just be careful with the milk, don’t pour too much, otherwise the truffles will turn out too soft. Pop the mixture into the fridge for about 0.5h to cool it down. This will make it easier to roll out the truffles. Once the chocolatey paste is cooled, start rolling the truffles. Place them on a baking sheet and dust generously with cocoa powder. Roll the truffles in the cocoa powder to cover all the sides and pop them back into the fridge or, straight into your mouth!
Keep the truffles in the fridge and take them out just before the guest arrive. Enjoy!
