These chocolate orange truffles are the perfect sweet bite if you’re looking for a little something to offer guests at all your festive dinners and parties. They’re easy to make, wonderfully gooey and ever so delicious.
200g of medjool dates
zest of 1 orange
squeeze of orange juice
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
3 tablespoons of raw cacao (plus more for rolling the balls in)
Pinch of salt
Simply pit the dates and blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until totally smooth – make sure you only use a small squeeze of orange juice otherwise the mixture will be too wet!
Scoop a teaspoonful of the mixture into your hands and roll it into a ball, then roll the ball in cacao powder.
Repeat until you have used all the mixture, then place the balls in the fridge for a few hours to firm up.
Top Tip – When rolling the balls I like to rub a little coconut oil into my hands to stop the truffles mixture sticking too much.
