These truffles are quick and easy to prepare, nice to throw together as your after dinner mint treat. I have adapted the Truffles from this recipe. Hope you enjoy x
First up you will need:
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
10 Regular Dates – Soaked in a cup of boiling water for 10 minutes then drained OR 5 Medjool Dates unsoaked
1/2 tsp Natural Peppermint Essence
1 Tbsp Raw Milk
Place the Coconut and Dates into a food processor or mini chopper and blitz until well combined. Add in the Peppermint Essence and Milk and blitz again. Roll into balls and place on a baking paper lined plate or tray and pop into the fridge while you make the Choc!
For the Choc you will need:
6 Squares of Dark Chocolate
1 Tbsp Dark Cocoa or Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Milk
1 heaped Tbsp Local Organic Honey
Place all of the Choc ingredients into a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until all the ingredients are melted together. Then bring your Truffles out of the fridge and using mini tongs coat each truffle in the Dark Choc. Place them back onto the baking paper lined plate and pop back into the fridge until set. Can be kept in the fridge or freezer.
I made 7 large truffles with this recipe. Be sure not to eat them all at once!
