      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.

      Love these all natural truffles! Not sure whether sesame paste refers to tahini or halwa, I used halwa. Way to go, perfect!

      Cute looking and really good! I liked them more than I thought I would. They were not too sweet. I did use Parnoosh soft Iranian dates as that is what I had on hand. They were easy to blend up with my hands but I can see the texture may be a bit better with harder type dates. I made my own sesame paste grinding sesame seeds with a very little bit of canola oil with my pestle and mortar and added a bit of tahini only because it wasn't enough (another time I used all store bought tahini). I am assuming that is what sesame paste is referring to anyway? I also seeded & crushed my own hail (cardamom, I may have used a bit more than called for as I love it, another time I used ground cinnamon as I was lazy to grind cardamom and it was good as well). I coated the truffles with carob powder (my favorite), sesame seeds, unsweetened dedicated coconut & ground pistachio nuts (my second favorite). I would like to make these again for DH with Arab brewed tea or maybe during Ramadan as a selection with sweets. Made for Spring 2011 (PAC) Pick A Chef.

      Used a food processor in place of the food grinder. Couldn't afford cardamom so I used half cinnamon and half nutmeg. I used cocoa, coffee, sesame seeds and coconut to coat them. My DB said he liked the sesame the best. He ate two before I could save them.
