Chocolate Vegan Truffles

25 Servings

Total time: 2 Hours, 30 Minutes

Ingredients

    • ¾ cup dates, dried, pitted and chopped
    • ¾ cup almonds, slivered
    • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • ½ cup creamy, unsalted almond butter
    • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 2 tb. honey
    • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
    • ¼ tsp. sea salt
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • Cocoa powder, ground nuts, melted dark chocolate, shredded coconut for toppings

Directions

    1. Heat 1½ cups of water. Once water is heated, soak dates, letting them sit overnight.
    2. The following day, soak almonds for two hours in water, then remove excess water.
    3. Drain and dry dates and almonds.
    4. Using a food processor, add dates and process until smooth; next, add almonds and process until combined mixture is smooth.
    5. Add cocoa powder to the date-and-almond mixture, followed by the almond butter (which should be room temperature); process until smooth.
    6. Finally, add cinnamon, honey, cayenne pepper, salt and vanilla, processing again until the mixture forms a ball.
    7. Roll individual balls (roughly the size of a ping-pong ball); these balls can then be rolled in the coating of your choice. (Some great options for toppings include cocoa powder, ground nuts, melted chocolate and shredded coconut.)
    8. Place coated truffles on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for two hours until firm.
