My FREE Workshop for Kids and Adults TOMORROW! and Hazelnut Date Truffles with Espresso-Chocolate Coating

 

Hi everyone! Have you ever made a recipe that tasted so good you wanted to make out with yourself? Well, you will indeed feel that way if you make these tasty treats that I created last week. Seriously? Seriously? They are incredibly delicious and even good for you!

In addition, I just want to tell you that I will be teaching you and your children how to make some healthy breakfasts TOMORROW:

June 24th

at Designer Appliances Showroom in Montclair, NJ

from 1-3

PLEASE join us!

Hazelnut Date Truffles with Espresso Chocolate Coating:

one cup hazelnuts

1 1/2 cups pitted dates

1/4 tsp kosher salt

Combine above ingredients in a food processor until it starts to ball up and stick together

If you can mold balls out of the “dough” you can do so. If it is still crumbly, add a few more dates until they are sticky enough to mold

(should make about 20 3/4 inch balls)

lay the finished ones on wax paper on top of something hard like a wooden cutting board

They are now ready for rolling in the chocolate which I like to do with chopsticks or toothpicks

Coating:

one cup dark chocolate morsels or good quality cholate chopped

1/4 tsp ground espresso beans

1/4 cup almond milk

Combine chocolate and almond milk in a double boiler until melted

Add in the espresso grounds

Let cool to warm but not too cool because then the chocolate will be too hard to roll the truffles in

Roll each truffle in the chocolate and then place back on the wax paper

When all are coated, place in the fridge to harden
