Truffle bites
These truffles are so easy and make great gifts. 

Handful of almonds, halved

30 whole pitted dates

50g coconut flakes

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch salt

5 tbsp hot chocolate powder

200g cooking chocolate

Line a tray or large plate with parchment paper.

Place the almonds in a food processor and process until smooth.

Add the dates and process for a further minute. Add the coconut, coconut oil and salt.

Add 2 tbsp of the chocolate powder and put the rest on a shallow plate. Pulse for a further 30 seconds.  

Roll about 1 tbsp of the mixture into a ball and place on your tray. Allow to chill in the fridge for an hour.

In the meantime, melt the chocolate in 30-second blasts in the microwave.

Remove the truffles from the fridge and dip in the chocolate. To make it easier for dipping the truffles, pour the chocolate onto a shallow plate 

Roll in the rest of the chocolate powder before allowing the chocolate to harden.
