Apricot Chocolate Truffles

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 TBSP raw cacao powder
2 TBSP shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup walnuts

Directions

Remove the pit from the dates. Add dates and apricots to food processor or blender. Mix/ chop until the fruit has the consistency of paste. Add vanilla, cacao powder, coconut, salt and walnuts. Blend all ingredients together.

Remove the mixture from the food processor/ blender. With damp hands, roll the mixture into small truffles. 

Chill for about 1 hour before serving. This makes a small batch: about 10-12 truffles.
