Almond Butter Cocoa Truffles – Vegan & Gluten Free

Almond Butter Cocoa Truffles - Vegan & Gluten Free

I was thinking about Christmas this morning (I know, a little premature, blame the internet, people are already talking about it) and wanted to find something delicious and chocolatey that I can make for Christmas Eve/Day that my dad can enjoy.

Being vegan, for extreme health reasons, finding chocolate goodies that he can share with us can sometimes be a little tricky.

Then I came across these bad boys! I think they’re a winner 🙂

Almond Butter Cocoa Truffles

Ingredients:

1 cup dates
1/3 cup almond butter
