Date Heaven

Date Truffles

Due to popular demand on Facebook and Twitter, here’s the recipe of this decadent dessert, which is so simple, I can’t even call it a ‘recipe’:

Basically, I got a packet of soft dates. I used the whole packet, de-seeded the dates and put them all in a bowl.  If the dates are soft, you can blend the mixture with your hands; if they are hard, you can heat them with a little bit of butter until they soften.

To the date mush, I added cinnamon and cardamom powder.

Then I took a small piece of the date in my hand, flattened it, inserted a hazelnut in the middle and covered it to make a marble sized ball.

I then rolled each of the balls into raw cacao powder or coconut powder (or both).

The result is an amazing ‘guilt-free’ dessert option.

You can also make it with any varieties.  I sometimes make it with chopped walnuts or almonds; and the topping can be coconut, sesame seeds, or just about anything you want.

Here’s one I made earlier
