Nutella truffles

 

I have created this recipe for my hubby’s  birthday.

He loves chocolate! I really mean it!

I like to create sweet treats for him, so at least I know what’s inside my chocolate.

Unprocessed Cacao is high in protein, antioxidants,  mood-boosting compounds. So yes, chocolate is not too bad, as long as you have it in moderation.

As most of my recipes, this one it’s very simple. Just a few nourishing ingredients mixed together. The main components are raw cacao and nuts!

The silky smooth truffle center is really where the magic happens here.

 

So here is the recipe.

Ingredients
  • 300 gr medjool dates ( soaked in warm water)

  1. Using your food processor. Pulse the hazelnuts until they have blended into butter consistency.
  2. Remove the nut mix from the food processor, pulse the dates until they have blended and it’s starting to stick together.
  3. Add cacao powder and coconut chips, pulse again to combine.
  4. Add hazelnut meal, pulse to combine.
  5. If the mixture feels too crumbly, add a splash of coconut milk, if too sticky and runny add more hazelnut meal.
  6. Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball with your hands. Place them onto a plate or baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper.
  7. Dip them into the melted chocolate and let it set in the fridge for 1h.
  8. Store them in a sealed container in the fridge. They will keep for several days.
  9. Decorate with the choice of your toppings.
  10. ***If your dates aren’t soft enough, soak them in hot water for about 5 min. Drain them well before using.
