Raw-Riffic Chocolaty Gooey Truffles

I truly enjoy making raw chocolate truffles and cookies, almost as much as I like to eat them. This recipe makes a delicious, delightful, and chewy chocolaty truffle. Besides rolling the truffles in coconut and almonds, you could also roll it in cacao powder, lucuma powder, and even cinnamon. I know you will enjoy these tasty treats!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup almonds (soaked 2-3 hours)
1/2 cup walnuts (soaked 1-2 hours)
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs (ground to a powder)
3 Medjool dates
1 tsp cinnamon
2-4 drops chocolate flavored Liquid SweetLeaf Stevia
shredded dried coconut and crushed almond slices (to roll and cover truffles)

Preparation:
Grind nuts and dates into a paste. Add cacao, cinnamon, and stevia. Mix well. Form balls about 1-1 ½ inches in diameter. Coat with shredded dried coconut and crushed sliced almonds. Store in an air-tight container, preferably in the refrigerator.
