    hoda's Note:

    This recipe is easy to make and popular in Iraq since one of the things that Iraq is famous for is dates. We have lots of varieties and kinds of dates from chewy to very hard. It is better to use this recipe with hard type of dates (called kasab) not soft, but you could use soft dates if you didn't find hard dates. Sometimes Ii use already-crushed dates from the market and it goes well too. There are lots of varieties for the coating of the truffles, use as many coatings as you like according to your personal taste.

    coating

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put all ingredients in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Grind the mixture with meat grinder finely.
    3. 3
      Shape the dates into small balls 2 cm in diameter with slightly oiled hand with vegetable oil (I like to shape them roughly so they are not so perfect balls).
    4. 4
      Roll the truffles in your selected coating and place on parchment paper or tray.
    5. 5
      Put the truffles in small decorative paper cups and arrange them in the serving plate.
    6. 6
      If you bought dates that are already ground and pitted, you don't need to grind them in the meat grinder, simply knead ingredients together by hand or you can grind it again by the meat grinder.

      I make an almost identical recipe, which my friend from Croatia brought with her. She said that she has used dried figs when dates weren't available, though I've never tried that, yet.

      These are really good! I only made half a batch because my food processor is little, but I used the full amout of cardamom. Wow! These were good! Reviewed for Pick-A-Chef

      5 stars! easy peasy! I ran out of dates and used some figs for half total volume of dried fruit. I rolled in all the suggested toppings and also tried -other combos: 1) cocoa nibs and 2) a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, 3) carob powder, all were a hit. Will make again. I took all the leftover ingredients from the rolling step and mixed together and added to oatmeal next day for an interesting breakfast.
