German Chocolate Truffles

It's my birthday this week.  I take after my dad though.  I don't like cake.  I don't even like it for my birthday. I'd rather have another treat.  But . . . if I had to pick my favorite kind of cake it would be German Chocolate.  Now that's a cake worth eating.  Knowing that you probably won't be surprised to find that I love these German chocolate truffles. Rich, chocolaty goodness with that perfect coconut chewiness.  You would never guess they're healthy and free of refined sugar.  I love to whip up a batch of these on a Friday night after the kids are in bed for a special treat for my husband and I to share.

German Chocolate Truffles
(adapted from this recipe)

3/4 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup pecans (walnuts work too)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt

1. Measure all ingredients into a food processor.  Blend until well combined, about 30 seconds.

2. Squish mixture together and and roll into bite size balls.  Store in airtight container.  I like to keep them in the fridge.
