These irresistible, 4-Ingredient dessert truffles have only chocolate, peanut butter, dates for sweetening and a sprinkle of kosher salt. That's it!
4-Ingredient Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Truffles [Vegan]
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 bar dairy-free chocolate
- kosher salt for topping
Soak dates in hot water for 15 minutes to soften them. Drain and place them in a food processor along with the peanut butter. Blend until it forms an even and thick consistency, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. If the consistency is too thick for processing, add 1 teaspoon of water at a time until you are able to process the dates. Avoid adding too much water as this will make forming the truffles very difficult.
Place processed mixture in freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.
Remove from freezer and with your hands portion out about 1 tablespoon at a time and roll into balls.TIP: Wetting your hands periodically helps prevent the dates from sticking to your hands. Place the date balls on a pan covered with parchment paper. Place the balls back in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove top. Remove balls from freezer and drizzle chocolate over the balls and sprinkle kosher salt on top. Place the balls back in the freezer until chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes.
Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator up to a week or freezer up to a month.
