Spicy Raw Truffles!

One of my latest raw food obessions is spicy chocolate date balls! They are ohhh so yummy and provide that cravable lucious flavor of cocoa with a smooth creamy filling.

These are super easy to make, and super good for you too!

I grind about 1/2 cup each of raw pecans and cashews in a food processor and set it aside. Then I blend up about 1 1/2 cups of coarsely chopped dates and about 1/4 cup of water, 2 tbsp of honey, and 2 red jalapeno peppers until the it is all blended well. Then I add about 3/4 cup of cocao powder to the mixture and mix until all is blended.

It will end up super sticky, but I roll these around in dried coconut and it makes a most delicious shell to hold it all together. Very, very, very good! :)

i make this too, but without the jalapeno. it sounds like it gives it a nice kick...have to try it.

There is nothing quite like spicy chocolate! Try it, its quite addicting! :)
