Snickers Moon Balls
Makes about 12 truffles
2 cups peanuts
½ cup raw cocoa powder
7 fresh dates, pitted
3 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
100 g / 3,5 oz raw chocolate or dark chocolate, melted
Preheat the oven to 175 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit degrees.
Spread the peanuts onto a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Roast the nuts in the oven for 15 minutes stirring once after 10 minutes.
Let the nuts cool and pour them into a blender. Blend until fine crust. Separate about ¼ cup of the mixture into a small bowl. Add cocoa powder, pitted dates, maple syrup and salt into the blender. Blend until moldable dough. Take about 1 tbsp of the dough and create a ball. Press your thumb inside the ball to create a hole. Add about 1 tsp peanut butter into the hole. Press the sides of the truffle to cover the hole. Prepare the rest of the dough the same way. Dip each ball into melted chocolate. A good tip is to use a toothpick for dipping. Sprinkle on the peanut crust you saved. Freeze the truffles for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy. Store in the fridge or freezer.
