Ingredients

  • 180g Fairtrade pitted dates
  • 100g Fairtrade cashews
  • 2 tbsp nut butter e.g. cashew, peanut, almond
  • 3 tbsp Fairtrade cacao powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp Fairtrade vanilla essence
  • 100g Fairtrade Divine Pink Himalayan Chocolate
  • To decorate: sprinkles, flaky salt

Method

1

1. Soak the dates in boiling water and drain.

2. Meanwhile, add the cashews to a blender and blitz to a fine meal. Remove from the blender. Now add the dates to the same blender with the nut butter and process until jammy, scraping down the sides as necessary.

3. Add in the blitzed cashews, cacao powder, salt and vanilla and process to a thick sticky dough.

4. Divide into 10-12 pieces and roll into balls. Place onto a tray line with parchment paper and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Roll each truffle into the chocolate, place onto the lined tray and sprinkle over the sprinkles and flaky. Set in the fridge for 10 minutes.
