Ohhh these are wicked, gooey heaven! Very quick and simple to make, although keep an eye on your blender motor if, like me, you don’t bother softening the dates first! Just take it in short bursts with time in between to cool down and it should be fine.
- 12 medjool dates
- 50-100g creamed coconut
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
The slightly vague creamed coconut quantity is down to preferred truffle texture. The less you use, the more gooey the truffle, so adjust to your own tastes!
Warm the creamed coconut to soften it, then mix everything together with a blender. I left a few coarser pieces of dates, but in all honesty that was as much because I feared for my hand blander as it was for texture!
Leave the mixture in the fridge to cool, then roll into small balls, and dust with your choice of coating. I used dessicated coconut for this batch, but cocoa powder, cinnamon, or chopped nuts would have worked nicely too.
