Nutella Date Truffles

Dates are one of the most popular fruits of the Arabian Peninsula. It’s health and nutritional benefits are endless. In Saudi, you find dates all-year-round. Fresh dates are way softer and juicier, when compared to the packaged dry ones.

Imagine these healthy goodies with an “edible-seed” and coated with your favorite chocolate spread.
All you need is 10 minutes.

To make date truffles, fresh dates would be better, but you could go for the dry ones too.

If you choose to use the dry ones, it would be ideal to soften them by soaking the dates in warm water for about 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

Dates – 10
Cashew nuts – 10
Nutella / Chocolate Spread – to coat the dates
A coating of your choice- I’ve used: Oats / Chopped Mint Leaves / Coffee Powder / Shredded Coconut

Step 1: Replace each seed with a cashew nut, so its more like a date with an “edible-seed”.

Step 2: Roll the dates and shape them into perfect balls.

Step 3: Dip and coat with Nutella or a chocolate spread of your choice.

Step 4: Smear each truffle with a coating of your choice.
