Oh wow, these are sooooo very yummy! Ive made many raw nut fruit truffles, but these really are the best so far. Simple, but stellar! I LOVE the texture and taste! YUM!<br/>I used a mix of powerfruit berries instead of dates and felt the balls were sweet enough with just the fruit, so I left out the honey.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Sharon!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #59 June 2013.
