    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    truffles

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups almonds
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 12 -13 dates, soaked for 15 minutes in water (deglet noor dates, whole pitted unsweetened, you can also sub medjool or other varieties)
    • 1 tablespoon strong coffee (or coffee liqueur such as Kahlua)
    • 1 tablespoon date water
    • 1/2 teaspoon vietnamese cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place almonds in a food processor and process until nearly the consistency of almond meal – the pieces should be very fine but stop before it starts to turn to butter.
    2. 2
      Next add cocoa powder, chocolate chips, dates (minus the water) and spices and blend well.
    3. 3
      Add coffee and pulse. Add 1 Tbsp of date water ONLY if your batter isn’t coming together. It should be difficult to process at this point.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a bowl and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove from freezer and roll into 1-inch balls. They will be sticky but manageable with the warmth of your hands.
    6. 6
      Roll in cocoa or cacao powder (optional) and keep frozen to retain freshness. You can eat them chilled or at room temperature. I preferred them a tad on the warm side as you could taste more of the flavors.
