Ingredients

  • 6 Medjool dates
  • 1 Cup raw almonds
  • 1/4-1/2 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder extra 1/4 cup for coating
  • 2-4 Tbsp. hot water
  • 1/4 Cup Goji berries for coating

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.
