Chocolate Cherry Truffles

When only the best will do

Cacao and cherry makes for a perfect match in these decadent truffles. Or try one of several flavorful variations.

Ingredients

½ Cup Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs (ground-more for richer flavor)
½ Cup Dates,  pitted, packed
¼ Cup dried Cherries, coarsely chopped
1 tsp Cherry Extract, Frontier herbs recommended
2 tsp Cherry Concentrate, Eden recommended

Directions

Grind the cacao nibs in a coffee grinder until powdered. Puree all ingredients in a food processor until the batter becomes emulsified. Then, refrigerate the batter until chilled, about 1 hour.

Form the batter into round balls. (You can also use candy molds for a variety of shapes, or form into a block and make thin slices.) These truffles are best refrigerated and will last for up to 6 months.

For a more milk chocolaty flavor, puree in:

  • 1c. Soaked and dehydrated walnuts or
  • 1/2c. Almond Butter

 Variations:

  • Add 2 tsp. fresh ginger and replace cherries with dates.
  • Mix in a few Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs (unground) for texture.
  • For a more milk-chocolaty flavor, puree in 1 cup soaked and dehydrated walnuts, or ½ cup almond butter.

Yield: approx. 8-12
