These raw truffles are rich, creamy, caramel-y and so delectable. The sweet dates compliment the rich cacao powder and/or the fruity acai powder, and the various coatings trick you into thinking that you're having a real special treat. 

Servings: 14 truffles
Ingredients
Cacao Truffles
  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 Tbsp. cacao powder, divided
Acai-Coconut Truffles
  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp. acai powder
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened desiccated coconut
Chocolate Truffles
  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp. cacao powder
  • dark chocolate, tempered (for dipping)
Instructions
  1. Into a high-speed food processor, add the dates and 2 Tbsp. (14 g) cacao powder or 2 Tbsp. (12 g) acai powder and process the ingredients into a very smooth paste. You might need to use a spatula to scrape the mixture down as you blend.

  2. Using a spoon, scoop out mixture and roll it into balls. The "dough" will be very sticky so wet your hands to make the rolling easier.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp. (7 g) of cacao powder/coconut/melted dark chocolate into a small bowl and coat the truffles evenly. Place the finished truffles on parchment lined baking sheet.

  4. Store leftover truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. For longer term storage, freeze in an airtight container for 1-2 months.
