- 1 1/4 cups dates
- 4 oz mixed nuts
- 16 oz Brazil nuts
- 10 oz lemon juice
- 5 ml lime juice
- 3 1/2 oz ground almonds
- 2 tbsps coco powder
- Place the dates, almonds, coco powder, lime rind and juice in a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a stiff ball - adding more lime juice if necessary to help bring the mixture together
- Remove blade and roll date mixture into balls. Place in truffle cases or roll into balls and fill each with a Brazil (or macadamia) nut. Roll in extra chopped nuts too, if you like.
- Cover and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Note: you can also dust your truffle in coco powder, coconut or chopped nuts for that extra treat!
