I don’t know about you, but when the weather is gross and cold, I just want to eat. I’m wrapped up in a blanket reading, watching a movie, or surfing the internet (notice nothing that requires much moving), and somehow this makes me really hungry. I’ve been trying to think of and make snack foods that are relatively healthy to eat on these lazy days. Then I remembered these chocolate truffles that I used to make back in the day and decided I had to make them again! After I made them, and remembered how delicious they were I knew I had to share them with you! I re-found this recipe on Health Foodie.
1/2 c pitted prunes
1/4 c pitted dates (You can also use raisins, or just 3/4 c of prunes. Make sure your dried fruit has no added sugar)
5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in food processor until smooth. It will probably form a large ball.
Roll into smaller balls, refrigerate and enjoy!
To make your truffles even more decadent roll in crushed nuts, coconut, shredded chocolate, etc.
These truffles have a very delectable dark chocolate taste! You won’t be able to eat just one and that’s okay!
