Well, hello and welcome to my first post.

I’m keeping it simple here, not too many words and not too many photo’s – you guys don’t need crappy iphone photo after crappy iphone photo, amiright! Once I figure out how to fix my actual camera though, you all better watch out! {Edit: camera has been fixed!}

Here’s my first offering. Deliciously easy chocolate truffles. These came about one day when I was seriously craving chocolate, but bliss balls just weren’t doing it for me. I needed that smooth & creamy chocolatey mouth feel. Enter these little morsels of goodness. They’re the perfect amount of sweet for me, a bit like an earthy version of dark chocolate truffles.

This recipe is adapted from Natural Kitchen Adventures. I just love adding tahini to recipes, especially chocolate ones, but sometimes I find the bitter nutty taste overwhelms the pleasantness, so I often sub out some tahini for almond butter. Well, ‘coz I just looooove adding almond butter to almost everything! You could try these with with other nut butters or even some sun butter to keep it nut free. And, of course, if nut free is needed you can use all tahini as Ceri does, at Natural Kitchen Adventures.

 

I hope you enjoy, please drop me a line and definitely let me know if you make these. I can’t recommend enough that you do!!

    I’ve said it in the past, and I’ll say it again…looks great! I made the same but without the tahini. My processor can’t handle dates, so I soak them in water for 10 minutes however this makes the dates too soft and as a result my truffles were very sticky. Any ideas …. ?

      Thanks for getting in touch Daniela! I’m so glad you made these yummy truffles. To answer your question, it really depends on what dates you’re using… is it Medjool dates or another type of pre-pitted dates? Medjool’s should be soft enough of you leave them at room temperature for an hour or so. If you don’t have access to Medjool’s then I would suggest flash soaking your dates in boiling water and really squeezing out as much moisture as you can once they’re cool, and potentially adding some more cacao powder to compensate for the wetness. Or, maybe it’s time for an upgrade on your food processor hehe! 🙂
