These decadent little chocolate truffles are free of gluten, dairy, refined sugar. They are grain-free, Paleo and vegan. The best part of making them is that they can be made in just a few minutes flat. I love chocolate, and these truffles offer so much more nutrition than store-bought varieties. The combination of ground dates and nuts makes a great “dough” that is fun to work with. This recipe will please adults and children alike, including the fussiest members of your family!
