Dark Chocolate Date and Nut Truffles
This recipe is a slam-dunk no matter what your skill level. Even nonbakers will have success. We first tasted these creations in San Francisco at the 2011 Arizona Center For Integrative Medicine’s Nutrition & Health Conference. Since this conference, it has become a perennial favorite. Thanks to Rebecca Katz for the recipe! It is great for company since it makes so many truffles.

- 1/4 cup finely diced dried apricots or dried cranberries
- 2 ounces dark chocolate with a 64 to 72 percent cacao content, finely chopped
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons raw almonds
- 1 cup pitted and halved Medjool dates
- 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest, or 1/2 teaspoon orange oil (not orange extract)
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- Soak the apricots or cranberries in cold water for 5 minutes.
- Place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons of boiling water. Let stand for 30 seconds. Using a small whisk, stir until the chocolate is completely melted and glossy.
- Coarsely grind the almonds in a food processor, then add the dates, orange zest or oil, salt, and the chocolate and process until smooth, about 1 minute.
- Transfer to a bowl; drain the apricots or cranberries well and stir them into the chocolate mixture. Cover and chill for approximately 2 hours, until firm,
- Scatter the coconut on a large plate. Scoop up 1 tablespoon of the chocolate mixture and into a smooth ball between your palms, then roll into the coconut to coat. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Place all the truffles into an airtight container and chill thoroughly before serving. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
