Chocolate Truffles

Recipe originally published by Foodista.com

Ingredients

15 dried dates (pitted)
3/4 cups sliced or slivered almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon agave nectar (or honey)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup hot water

Optional Truffle Coating: Coconut flakes, sprinkles, cocoa powder or crushed nuts

Preparation

Soak dates in hot water while you prepare the rest of the ingredients (about 5 minutes). The water should be hot to the touch, but not scalding. Process the almonds in a food processor until a coarse almond meal is formed. Add pecans and process until they are ground up into a coarse meal as well. Drain the dates.
