2-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles

  1 rater(s)

How is a two-ingredient chocolate truffle even possible? How could such a truffle be raw vegan? We have two ingredients that will explain: raw cacao powder and dates. This heavenly combination is the perfect combination of sweet and bitter. Because the raw cacao powder is unsweetened, it retains that classic bitterness from dark chocolate. Each bite is wonderfully balanced, but careful not to eat too much of them. Dates contain a lot calories and sugars and even though the sugars are natural, keep that in mind as you enjoy these desserts.

Dates are incredibly useful on the raw vegan diet. You can use them to sweeten smoothies or dressings, or incorporate them into desserts. We love Medjool dates, but make sure that they don’t contain any added sugars or preservatives. Typically, you have to buy dates in bulk. If you are worried that you won’t use them, you can pit the dates and then freeze them to keep them fresh for longer. When ready to use, you can soak the frozen dates in warm water before blending to ease that process.

Blitz these two ingredients together in a food processor until you achieve a smooth paste. The only thing left to do is form the mixture into small, bite-size truffles, and place them in the freezer to harden. You can enjoy them as is, or you can elevate them to the next level by dusting them with more raw cacao powder. We suggest that you dust the truffles instead of rolling them in raw cacao powder. You will likely end up with too much powder on the truffles. Use a mesh strainer to dust them and make sure to rotate them as you do it for an even coat.

2-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles
  • Prep Time:30m
  • Total Time:30m


  • 2 c Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. raw cacao powder (plus more for dusting)


  1. Add the dates and the cacao powder to a food processor and blend until you have a smooth consistency. You may need to stop blending, scrape down the sides of the processor, and continue blending to fully incorporate the ingredients.
  2. Line a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper. Scoop out the mixture and roll it into bite-size balls. You may want to lather your hands in coconut oil to roll them because the mixture will be sticky. Place them on the parchment paper and then freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the freezer and dust the truffles with more raw cacao powder, if you want. If you do this step, place them back in the freezer for another 30 minutes before enjoying. If you don\'t, you can enjoy right away.
  4. Leftover truffles will stay fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for up to two months.
