HEALTHIER FESTIVE CACAO TRUFFLES
1 cup pitted dates
½ cup walnuts
¼ cup raw almonds or hazelnuts
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Pinch of salt
1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process for roughly 2 minutes. When a dough ball begins to form, you know it’s ready.
2. Grabbing approximately one tablespoon at a time, roll the dough into small balls, roll through a little extra cacao powder until thoroughly coated for that little extra chocolatey kick.
3. Optionally, place a walnut atop each truffle for decoration.
4. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. These make a fantastic gift or a delicious treat to share on Christmas day.
PakMag Tip: Add a few teaspoons of orange or mandarin rind for a zestier taste!
