Apricot Chocolate Truffles are a great choice when you’re craving just a little something sweet. Made of pure, simple ingredients, these truffles pack a lot of flavor and nutrition. They aren’t the prettiest things to look at, but you’ll get over that once you taste them.
4 large Medjool dates
6 unsulphured dried apricots
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 TBSP raw cacao powder
2 TBSP shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup walnuts
pinch of salt
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.
