-Spooky Spider Healthy “Nutella” Truffles
- 1 + 1/2 Cups dates (about 230 gr. of UNPITTED ones)
- 1 cup toasted hazelnuts
- 4-5 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 Tsp. vanilla extract
- about 150 gr. chocolate sprinkles
- black licorice strings
- m&m's or smarties
|Soak the dates in water for 15 minutes. |
|Break them down in a food processor and when they're blended, add hazelnuts and cocoa powder and blend until a ball forms. |
|Shape dough into balls and press liquorice strings into each one. |
| Press two smarties as if they were eyes. |
|Roll them in chocolate sprinkles. |
|Chill them on the freezer for at least 3 hours. If you chill them on the fridge, wait overnight. |
Don't use anything but a powerful food processor to make these. No blenders and no small food processors. I had to learn that the hard way.
You can use other nuts instead of hazelnuts if you don't have them on hand.
