DIY SnackShop: Date Cocoa Truffles

at Collard City Growers lot

Today we made Date Cocoa Truffles, right after a thunderstorm dumped a lot of rain in the Capital Region. The past week we experienced very high temperatures, so we celebrated the much needed rain with mud looking treats.  The kids were “not eating that” or “not touching that”, but they tried and licked their fingers.

Date Cocoa Truffles

  • 2 tbsp to ¼ cup tahini (sesame paste) or peanut butter (we made both kinds)
  • 1 cup of chopped dates
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

Mix all ingredients by hand. Roll into small, truffle sized balls.

Roll in cocoa powder, coconut, other nuts if desired. Keep refrigerated.
