Chocolate-Date Truffles With Walnuts
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  broken walnuts
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1 1/2  cups  whole medjool dates (12 to 15 dates), pitted
  • 3  tablespoons  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1  tablespoon  apple juice
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  •  Water (optional)
Directions

1. In a food processor combine walnuts and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cover and process with on/off pulses until finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow dish; set aside.

2. In the food processor combine dates, cocoa powder, apple juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover and process until mixture forms a thick paste. If necessary, add 3 to 4 teaspoons water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to reach desired consistency.

3. Using 2 teaspoons of the dough for each truffle, shape into a ball. Roll balls in walnuts to coat. (If dough becomes too sticky, chill for 15 to 20 minutes). Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
