Great treats and great for you!
Thanks for sharing this recipe. Truffles are so tasty!
What a treat! I am making a slow transition from vegetarian to vegan and recipes like this will make the transition that much easier. Made these with my boyfriend - rolled the truffles in toasted unsweetened coconut, plain unsweetened coconut, toasted walnuts, pistachio crumbles, and mixed raw unsweetened cocoa with sweetened coca (sifted). They are almost too pretty to eat!
Fantastic recipe, the first time I made a half-batch and it went smoothly, but I double-batched last night and had a much harder time with the blender. I recommend blending the dates and nuts in small-ish quantities at a time.
They taste amazing from the freezer!
I made these last week for my boyfriend and he loved them. So here I am again checking the recipe just before i make another bunch.
Note: I do not like the balls covered in cocoa, its better to cover them in coconut or the nuts
I'm not vegan myself, but I decided to look into desserts I could make so I wouldn't have to leave out one of my friends when I make food for everyone. These are delicious! They're very easy to make, but perhaps a little messy. For those who are unafraid of the mess, you'll get a delicious treat. I bought a little bit too much of the shredded coconut, so I rolled the truffles in that before popping them into the freezer.
Side note: for those of you who have never touched dates (like me) make sure you get the pits out before you throw them into the blender. xD
