You need a food processor for this recipe. Insrtuctions:
- Pit the soft dates.
- Blend the macadamia nuts first. Then add the dates, coconut, cacao and the licorice powder.
- Blend everything until the ingredients sticks together almost like a dough. Do not blend the pastry too much give it a couple of pulses and then check the pastry if its firm enough to form the balls off.
- Form the balls with your hands.
- Roll the balls in the desired coatings and place them on a plate.
- Keep the truffles in room temperature and if it is for a later serving keep them cool in the fridge.
If the pastry is too firm, add more soft dates. The stickier the pastry is the better the decorations sticks to the date truffles. Just do not add too many dates because then you might get a too soft pastry to form anything out off. And if it’s too sticky add more nuts or desiccated coconut. Find a fine balance between both.
