Need a yummy dessert that will definitely win your guests over at Easter brunch? Try these simple Dark Cocoa Maple Truffles-bet that at least half of them don't even make it to the dessert table!
- 10 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp nicobella hot cocoa mix
How to Make
Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Blend the dates, coconut and maple in a high powered blender until they form a dough-like consistency. Place mixture in a bowl. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the mixture and roll into balls with your hand. Place the cocoa in a small bowl. Roll the balls in the cocoa powder and place on the parchment lined baking sheet. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Eat up and enjoy!
Variations: Add walnuts, hemp seed or maca powder to the mixture or roll the truffles in nuts or seeds.
