Raw Coconut Almond Truffles
1 cup dates
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 + 2 Tbsp cup raw cocoa powder
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp salt
Extra coconut, cocoa powder, or nuts for finishing
Now it's time to truffle. If the "dough" is too sticky at this point, place in the freezer for 30 minutes until it rolls easily into balls. Measure the truffle mixture out with 1 heaping tablespoon each. Roll into balls and then toss in your desired topping.
While these could be eaten right away, the truffles are best when cold. For best results place truffles in freezer and allow to harden (at least 1 hours). Store the remaining in freezer and pull out 10 minutes before serving.
What's your favorite midnight treat?
