For the third ball of Christmas I would like to offer you….Nature’s Fudge Truffles!

Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me….check out these bad boys and I’m sure you’ll agree!  The ingredient list includes….cashews, dates and cocoa.  That’s it.  Believe me they don’t disappoint!  They taste fudgy and delightful without all the guilt, refined sugar and butter!

Ingredients:

1 cup medjool dates, pitts removed (if using other dried dates, soak in water for 10 minutes to soften and hydrate)

1 cup soaked, drained cashews (3 hours to overnight)

1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder

Directions:

1. Process cashew in the food processor until smooth.  Add pitted dates and cocoa powder.  Blend until smooth and mixed well.

2. Using wet hands, roll into 1 inch balls. If desired, roll in cocoa powder (you can add some cayenne or cinnamon for some pizzazz if desired!).

Makes about 1 dozen.  Store in the fridge or freezer.
