Cocoa Date Truffles

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh Medjool dates, pitted (firmly pack in measuring cup)
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder, optional.


Directions:
  1. Remove the stem bases and pits of the dates and steam them until they are soft.
  2. Place the dates, vanilla, salt and optional cinnamon into a food processor and process until as creamy a mixture as possible.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and process until the truffle mix binds into a large ball.
  4. Remove the truffle mass from the processor bowl.
  5. Roll 1 tablespoon portions into little balls in the palms of your lightly oiled hands. 
  6. Finally, roll truffles in sugar, cocoa powder or a mixture, to finish the truffles and prevent stickiness.


Keep refrigerated. Makes 16 truffles.
