Decadent Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

Prep Time:

20 minutes

Cook Time:


10 servings



About the Recipe


1 cup Pitted Dates (packed)

3 cups Water (just boiled)

1/3 cup Cocoa Powder

1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract

3 tbsps Coconut Oil

1/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

1/4 tsp Sea Salt (large flakes, for topping)


  1. Add the dates to a medium-sized bowl and cover with just-boiled hot water. Let them sit for 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Drain the dates and add to a blender or food processor along with cocoa powder, peppermint extract and coconut oil. Process until the mixture comes together.

  3. Remove the chocolate mixture and scoop into rough teaspoon-sized balls. Don't roll them with your hands just yet as they will be too oily. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and put them in the freezer to set for about 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips and microwave on high for 30 to 45-second intervals until melted. Stir with a spoon to fully combine.

  5. Remove the truffles from the freezer and use your hands to smooth them into balls. Take each ball and roll into melted chocolate with a spoon and then place them back on the baking sheet. Top with flaky sea salt and let them sit for 5 to 10 minutes to set or place in the fridge to set faster. Enjoy!
