by Shayne 🎨

These chocolate covered truffles are made from only healthy ingredients but they taste delicious!

Supplies

  • 10 Medjool dates- soaked for 1 hour to soften
  • ½ Cups Cashew nuts
  • 3 Tablespoons Cocoa powder
  • ¼ Cups Shredded coconut meat (optional)
  • ½ Teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • ¼ Teaspoons Salt
  • ½ Cups Chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Get 10 Medjool dates. You can use any variety of dates- but Medjool are really sweet!

    Step 2

    Soak the dates in water for 1 hour to soften them.

    Step 3

    Gather the rest of the supplies...

    Step 4

    While the dates are soaking --pet the dog. Look at that face. I can't say no to that!

    Step 5

    Once the dates are soft - take out the pits and throw them away. Put the dates in the food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients.

    Step 6

    After the ingredients are in the food processor- blend them all up. Keep blending until everything is soft and it forms a ball.

    Step 7

    The blended ingredients will look like this when it's done.

    Step 8

    Take bits of the date mixture and roll it into balls. I rolled 24 little truffles. Put them on wax paper or foil on a tray. Then put the tray into the fridge.

    Step 9

    While the truffles are firming up in the fridge- get your chocolate chips and (optional) coconut oil. Put them in a microwave safe dish. Microwave them until very melted.

    Step 10

    The melted chocolate will look something like this.

    Step 11

    Take a truffle and dunk it into the melted chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off. It's probably a good idea to use a fork instead of a spoon.

    Step 12

    Put the truffles back on the foil and back into the fridge.

    Step 13

    You should make sure the extra chocolate drips into the bowl or it will look messy like this!!!

    Step 14

    This is what the truffles will look like when they come out of the fridge.

    Step 15

    Don't they look delicious?
