In a food processor, grind the nuts of your choice. Add the cacao powder, dates, honey, coconut butter, and sea salt and blend. Add enough water to make the mixture moist but not wet. Hand-roll the honey-chocolate mixture into small balls, the size of cherries. Roll the truffles in the shredded coconut and store in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.
Each week, The Splendid Table brings you stories that expand your world view, inspire you to try something new, and show how food brings us together. We rely on you to do this. You have the power to keep us cooking, sharing these stories, and helping you in the kitchen.
