Healthy Triple Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 truffles
  • for truffles:
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 40 dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • carob chips
  • for topping:
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • ½ tsp coconut oil
  • optional toppings:
  • carob chips, crushed
  • cacao nibs, crushed
  • sea salt
  1. In food processor, puree cashews until finely ground. Add in dates (we recommend adding in 10 at a time) & puree until finely ground. Add in vanilla & cocoa powder & puree until all ingredients are blended. Transfer mixture to medium sized mixing bowl & stir in the carob chips. Place in fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Remove bowl from fridge & line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your (clean!) hands scoop up about 2 tbsp of mixture into your hands & firmly press it together. Continue pressing together alternating pinching into a ball with hands. Keep going until a small ball has been formed. You can mold it with your hands but don't roll them into a ball as they'll crumble. Place on baking sheet & continue until all the mixture has been used.
  3. In clean small mixing bowl, melt the coconut oil for 10 second intervals until liquid. Stir in the unsweetened cocoa powder & then drizzle over the balls. Immediately top with sea salt, crushed cacao nibs, etc. & place in fridge for 2 hours or until ready to eat. Serve & enjoy!
