These chocolate truffles take just a few minutes to make and are a perfect dinner party treat or edible gift idea. I love the combination of its naughty taste with the healthy kick. Nuts marry dates, dark chocolate and raspberries. What can go wrong in such a marriage?

Ingredients (make 12-15 truffles)

1 cup of walnuts

1/2 cup of almonds

12 dates

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp coconut oil

1 tiny pinch of salt

80g -100g dark chocolate

12-15 freeze dried/fresh raspberries (optional but recommended!)

Toppings: 

freeze dried raspberries

pistachios

desiccated coconut

bee pollen

 

How-to make chocolate truffles:

  1. Soak the dates in hot water for 10 min
  2. Mix all the ingredients except for the chocolate and raspberries (if using) in a food processor
  3. The mixture should be sticky so that you can form small balls. In case it is not sticky enough, add some more coconut oil or dates
  4. I like to add some freeze dried raspberries (you can also use fresh ones) and put them in the center of the balls. For this: form small flat shaped circles with your “dough”, add the raspberry and wrap it with the dough. This step is optional but I like the fruity kick inside the truffles
  5. Put the balls into the freezer to set for at least 20 min
  6. Melt your chocolate in a bain-marie. Don’t forget that chocolate and water are worst enemies so make sure not to let them engage in a battle:)
  7. Take  your balls out of the freezer and coat them one by one in the melted chocolate using two tablespoons to help you
  8. Put them to dry on some parchment paper and decorate them with the toppings before the chocolate hardens

Share and enjoy!

PS: Let them harden for at least a couple of hours, afterwards you can keep them a few days in your fridge or in your freezer they will should last for a very long time (even though I don’t know a single person who managed to keep their truffles in a freezer for a very long time 🙂 )
