I'm experimented with a few different versions of these chocolate truffles before but this is the first time I've found a recipe that I've absolutely loved as soon as I tasted it. No one would ever guess that these truffles were healthy! The original recipe is from here. I used the same ingredients but simplified it by chucking everything in the thermomix to blend up. Easy! The hardest bit was rolling them into balls (and I got the kids to help with that anyway).
2 cups natural almonds
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp ground cinammon
1 tsp vanilla bean (I used vanilla bean paste)
16 dried dates
2 tbsp water
extra cocoa and coconut for dusting
Place almonds, cocoa, cinammon, vanilla and dried dates into thermomix. Blend until finely ground (about 1 minute on speed 6)
Add the water and mix until it comes together.
Roll into small balls and dust with cocoa or coconut - whatever you prefer.
