Chocolate Rose Truffles

There’s a reason chocolate is synonymous with love. Cacao, the plant that forms your favorite treats, has naturally occurring compounds called anandamides that trigger neurotransmitters in the brain to create a state of euphoria. In Sanskrit, the root word Ananda means “bliss”—so quite literally, chocolate can curate an experience of love and bliss in the body and mind. These healthy chocolate truffles are made from mineral-rich tahini and natural sweeteners, finished with a subtle kiss of rosewater to complete each blissful bite.

Preparation

In a food processor, first combine the pitted dates and rosewater. Process until dates are broken down into a paste. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until a ball of dough forms. Use your hands to roll into 1-inch round truffles. Dip each truffle into cacao powder to finish. Store in the fridge until ready to enjoy.
