These chocolate truffles are not only incredibly delicious but this paleo truffle recipe is so easy to make in literally minutes, and you can skip the “all too common” waiting for hours in the fridge. The sesame seeds are always an option by the way. Use whatever you think will taste amazing.
These sugar-free chocolate truffles will acquire a deeper and richer taste over time and are definitely a recipe you should make if you anticipate guests. You will love this dessert and I know they will be asking for the recipe before they head home.
I always prefer to use organic where possible and I did so when making this recipe. I do believe the quality in the ingredients reflects in the outcome, meaning the overall flavor and undertones in elegant desserts which we all respect and enjoy from any good recipe.

- 20 pitted dates
