Sophia’s Date Truffles (aka Little Balls of Joy)
About 1 cup of dates (I use 10 large medjool dates), pitted
1 cup of walnut halves, (slightly less if using walnut pieces)
1 Tbsp carob powder, unsweetened
unsweetened grated coconut, approx. ¼ cup
Place dates, walnuts, and carob powder in a food processor and blend until well-chopped and uniform. Mixture should stick together when pressed. Shape into bite-sized balls. Roll in grated coconut.
If the mixture is not sticky enough add more dates. Some variation is to be expected because some dates are softer than others. Medjool dates tend to be the softest and of the highest quality.
Makes about 12.
