Great Lakes Energy Cooperative  
1h 30min including refrigeration time
Prep: 15min | | Servings: 1-2 truffles


  • 1/2 cup chili roasted pistachios (or chopped almonds/walnuts, roasted pistachios, etc.)
  • 7-8 pitted medjool dates, soaked in water for 10 minutes to soften; drained
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate (or semisweet chocolate if you prefer)

Add the pistachios to a food processor and pulse a few times until broken into small pieces. Add the dates, vanilla and cocoa powder, and pulse until moist and sticky dough is formed. Roll into 10-12 (1 inch) balls and freeze for at least 10 minutes. Melt chocolate and using tongs or toothpicks, dip each truffle to coat with chocolate. Optional: add crushed nuts on top while chocolate is still melted. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Can easily double or triple recipe.
