Date and Macadamia Truffles

Really fast and tasty. Someone in yoga class asked me if I was going to try and say they’re healthy… well they’re better than eating a processed chocolate bar 🙂

Makes about 20 truffles.

Ingredients:

50g Macadamia nuts

225g Soft pitted dates

100g dark chocolate (you can use milk, but the sweetness of the dates goes well with dark)

Method:

  1. Cut the dates roughly into halves or quarters.
  2. In a food processor blitz the Macadamia nuts, if you like a crunch of nuts keep them slightly bigger, if not blitz them more finely.
  3. Add the dates and blitz in pulses until it forms a sticky dough
  4. Roll the dough into roughly 20 small balls and put in the fridge
  5. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over boiled water.
  6. Roll the date balls in the chocolate and put on a board or tray covered in baking parchment. Pop them in the fridge for two hours.

    1. Yes 🙂 they seemed to go down well. Let me know if you make them. I thought a little bit of cardamom powder in the date and macadamia mixture might be nice, I’m going to experiment. Hx
