Walnut-Date Truffles

Recently I was craving chocolate, but didn't want to cave in to the extra ingredients added to a candy bar.  I went in search of a recipe that would allow the natural goodness of pure cocoa and healthy ingredients to please the palette.  Here's what I found --- and it was well worth the effort.  Yummy, healthful, raw, and oh, so good!

Walnut-Date Tuffles

1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup Medjool dates
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp. water

Place ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  Then, using a small cookie scoop, fill with dough to measure, then roll in hands to form a smooth ball.  Once round, gently roll in cacao powder.  Place into a mini cupcake or candy liner.  Chill until ready to serve.

Super delicious and enjoyed by all who came to visit!  Even better than "real" candy!
