I love using raw super foods in my recipes, especially when their desserts. Medjool dates are the perfect addiction to any raw, no bake, dessert. They add a lovely caramel like taste and texture with the processed and refined sugars!

Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Love Bite Truffles

Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 15 mins

Ingredients:

  • 6 Medjool dates

Instructions:

  • Place the almonds, dates, 1/4 cup of the cocoa powder, and hot water in a food processor and pulse until a smooth ball forms. It's ok if the almonds are still chunky as it gives the truffles texture.
  • Scoop approximately 1 tablespoon of the mixture into your hand and roll into a ball. It will be a little sticky. I like to have a small bowl of water to wet your hands with (it helps decrease stickiness). Set aside and roll the remaining mixture into balls.
  • Next, in a coffee grinder add in small amounts of the goji berries at a time so they don't stick together. Grind goji berries for about 10-15 seconds until they are a fine powder.
  • On a clean, dry plate pour your goji powder onto it and roll the balls into it, making sure to cover all sides evenly.
  • On a separate plate you can pour your extra cocoa powder and roll in the other half of your balls.
  • Finally, place in the freezer for about 30 min to set before eating. Take out and enjoy!
  • Store your chocolate truffles in the freezer and enjoy whenever your craving a delicious treat.

I found these mini cupcake cups at the dollar store and thought they were super cute to decorate my truffles with. Local craft stores, Walmart, or grocery stores will also carry cupcake cups.

I then found these heart shaped metal containers at Bulk Barn (a Canadian bulk food store) for you won’t believe… $1.49! Crazy I know. You could also place your truffles in a cute heart shaped box or cute baggies. Once again I would check out Walmart or a local craft store like Michaels for some Valentines Day boxes.

 Now that your chocolate love bite truffles are all wrapped and ready all you need is a sweet note to stick inside and a special somebody to give it to! I’ll be handing out a couple of these chocolate boxes to some loved ones in my life:)

  1. My friend Kayla pointed me in the direction of your blog and YouTube videos after she made these truffles for Valentines. They look incredible! A lot of date treats that I’ve tried to make have turned out quite mushy, but these look super substantial. Can’t wait to try myself! 🙂

    • Hey Alysha! Thanks for reaching out I’m so happy your friend Kayla referred my site and youtube channel to you. I will be posting a lot more recipes on my blog so stay tuned! xo
