Chocolate Almond Delight Truffles

Chocolate Almond Delight
  • 2 cups  almonds – toasted if preferred (toast nuts in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes)
  • 1 cup fresh dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened finally)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Add Almond Milk if needed
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  1. Toast almonds or not and place them into a food processor. Chop until fine. 
  1. Add coconut, vanilla, and cocoa powder and pulse the food processor to mix.
  1. Add dates and pulse until all the nuts are coated. The mixture should hold together when you form the truffles into balls. If it is too dry add a few drops of almond milk or regular milk to the batch.
  1. Use a tablespoon measure and roll out your truffles into balls.
  1. These are yummy just as they are but I prefer to dip them in melted dark chocolate and decorate them with coconut. Pictured above are truffles that I made for Valentine’s Day. I used Ruby chocolate and added a small heart to each truffle.
  2. Store these in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Be careful, they disappear fast!
