Raw chocolate truffles

I'm obsessed with this raw brownie recipe, so I adapted it a bit to make these truffles, which are coated in raw chocolate and other yum stuff like coconut and almonds! The perfect snack when my sweet tooth attacks (which is like, all the time).


1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup almonds (or more walnuts)

1 cup dates, soaked in hot water for 10 mins

1/2 cup cacao

pinch of sea salt

Process nuts in food processor until they are finely ground.
Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine. 

Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube while it is running. The mixture will look crumbly, but when pressed will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates). 

Press & roll the mixture into balls and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile make the raw chocolate. I use this recipe from Rawified.

Dip the truffles into the chocolate and place on a tray. I let them set in the fridge then dipped them a second time to make a thicker coat. Then roll in coconut or chopped nuts, or leave them plain! Either way they are amazing.
