Chocolate Cashew Truffles
Makes around 18 truffles
1 cup raw cashews (approx 125g)
1 cup dates (approx 150g)
¼ cup raw chocolate powder (approx 40g)
1/8 cup water (2-3 tbsp)
Optional coatings: Choc Powder, Chocolate Nibs, Desiccated Coconut, Chopped Nuts….
In a blender, grinder or food processor whiz the cashews into a powder (NB don’t whiz for too long or you’ll end up with a paste rather than a powder).
Put them in a bowl with the choc powder and mix.
Chop the dates into small pieces and add water. Whiz these until a nice mushy consistency (not too wet or your truffles won’t hold together).
Mix all ingredients together until you have a stiff, consistent mixture then take walnut sized pieces and roll them into balls using your hands. Finally roll in whatever coating you choose. Ready to eat straight away!
