Chocolate Fruit Truffles-Dairy Free

     I got this recipe from a December 2000 Better Homes and Garden magazine.  Unlike regular truffles, it contains no cream cheese, or heavy cream.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cups chopped walnuts
  • 8 oz prunes or pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup of Ocean Spray Craisins Sweetened Dried Cranberries 
  • 1/3 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
Directions:
  1. In a food processor blend the walnuts, prunes or dates, raisins, craisins, coconut, cocoa and cinnamon. Scrap down as often as necessary.
  2. Add the peanut butter and process until the mixture will form a ball.
  3. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in your 3 Tbsp of powdered sugar.
