Crispy Chocolate Walnut Truffles

Ingredients

200 grams Dark Chocolate Chips
50 grams Lightly Toasted Walnuts, divided
20 grams Organic Rice Puffs, divided
3 Large Medjool Dates, pitted and chopped
100 grams Natural Almond Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Sea Salt

Tray or plate lined with parchment paper

Method



Process one portion of walnuts, rice puffs and chopped dates in a food processor until it resembles fine crumbs.

Crush a half portion of walnuts with rolling pin.

Combine crushed walnuts, finely chopped walnuts, dates, rice puffs, dates, whole rice puffs, vanilla, sea salt, and almond butter. Mix together until it all looks a bit like cookie dough. Roll a small portion of the dough into a ball.

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler, making sure that the water doesn’t touch the top bowl. Remove from the heat and let the chocolate cool for a few minutes. Drop the balls in one by one, turning them around so that they are completely covered. Return them to the tray or plate, where they will flatten a bit on the bottom. Refrigerate until it’s ready to serve.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
