    Elise and family's Note:

    These make a great snack or dessert. I keep them in a bowl in the fridge, covered, for about three days, and my family munches one or two when they want a bit of something instead of having a piece of chocolate or a cookie. I adapted the recipe from George Mateljan's World's Healthiest Foods website.

      Excellent recipe. I only used about 1/4 cup of coconut, and I substituted honey for the maple syrup. I also added a bit of water after mixing in the cocoa, because it was so dry. Definitely a keeper, thanks!

      This is an easy and tasty recipe. The truffles are delicious, and I can't wait to let my family try them. I used what I had at home, so there were a lot of substitutions. I used 1/2 cup dates, 1/4 cup raisins and toasted sunflower seed nut butter rather than peanut butter. I used agave nectar rather than maple syrup. I only needed about 1 or 2 ounces of the coconut. I think this recipe can be adapted with almost any dried fruit that is very moist and other nut butters, especially almond.
