Dates, Almond Rosewater Chocolate Balls

October 22, 2014

Sugar free Dates almond truffles

For my second post, I decided to use 'raw' ingredients, that is easily available in your larder.
The sugary sweetness comes from dates instead of Stevia.

Almond, desiccated coconut and rosewater blended well with dates, and to coat with dark chocolates, gives it a good balance of sweet and bitter.

...and if you have been following my blog for sometime, you'd know that I fail miserably (sucks) in either icing, frosting or decorating a cake...and now I can add another to that list...
I can't even coat these balls :(...
I had to hide the ugliness / imperfection by coating them with desiccated coconut and hot chocolate powder ;P
