DIRECTIONS

  • Chop or grind the nuts (I used a mixture of Walnut, Almond, Cashew, Hazelnut, and Pistachio) either by hand, in a food processor, or in a coffee grinder, depending on the coarseness you prefer. The finer you chop the nuts, the firmer the mixture will stay together.
  • Chop the dates.
  • Make zests and juice out of the lemon.
  • Combine the chopped nuts, chopped dates, lemon zest and lemon juice either by hand, or in the food processor.
  • Scoop the mixture base on the size of truffles you want to make, make them into little balls, and roll them in the raw cocoa power, set aside.
  • The oil of the nuts will seep through the powder, and if you'd like, you can roll them in the raw cocoa powder again.
  • Set aside, it is pretty much ready to eat immediately. I prefer to store them in room temperature. It seems to allow the oil of the nuts and the cocoa powder to incorporate better as they sit.
  • Enjoy!
