TruffeskisDate puree and cacao (yep, that’s all!)

GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, EGG-FREE, AND WITH NO ADDED SUGAR OR FAT. So, are they good? Nope, not at all! To be honest, they’re an absolutely amazing festive discovery. I’m telling you now, eating a Madame Labriski Truffeski is almost like taking your taste buds on a magical journey. And that’s barely an overstatement. They bring happiness, joy and love, as well as inner peace. What more could you ask for? These festive treats for the Holiday season are a true marvel, and I’m very proud of them. Very. Very. Very. Honestly. Truly. I swear, I am very proud. Thankski for daring to wow yourself with your culinary skills and amaze your friends and family with this wholesome recipe (which is also super, super easy). And I may as well be honest, nobody is going to believe you when you say that they’re actually healthy. 1-0 for the cook!

Intensely delicious source of energizing fibre and lip-smacking, toe-curling happiness.

Truffeskis! Tru-tru-truffeskis! If you pronounce it with a slight foreign accent, it’s even more amusing!

Basic recipe

  1. Put the date puree and cacao powder into a large bowl and mix well using your wooden spoon. Be careful! Cacao has a tendency to puff all over so to avoid making a huge mess, I suggest you stir gently at first.

  2. Mix until well combined. Yes, I know it doesn’t look as though it’s going to work but trust me, it will. Just keep stirring until you have a nice smooth texture.

  3. Wow, don’t you think it smells amazing? Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yumski!

  4. Rub a little coconut oil (or other) into your hands and then shape the dough into nice little balls.

  5. Next, roll each of your little balls in the cacao. Helpful tip: I suggest putting the cacao in measuring cup and then gently rotating the balls in the cacao… they’ll come out perfect. If you don’t have a measuring cup, just simply roll them in the cacao.

(Optional) A few more show-stopping ideas

  1. To make an even greater stylish impression, you can roll some of the dough (or even another batch altogether) in a different type of yummy coating (pecans, ground almonds, matcha, coconut or colourful cake decorations to amuse the kids).

EXTRA! An original idea worthy of being called a festive trou normand!

  1. Put a few of your Truffeskis aside in the freezer. When the time is right, take them out and serve them to your dinner guests. The Truffeskis will act as a kind of festive trou normand, with a 100% guaranteed WOW factor.

Storage (in a airtight container)


  • A good week in the fridge
  • Three months in the freezer (but my guess is, that’s not going to happen anytime soon. Hahahaski!)

You may find this hard to believe but I think you’re going to knock people’s socks off with this creation. The recipe was concocted specially for the Holiday season and proves once again that there’s no reason why we can’t eat healthy at any time of the year. Rich in fibre, easy to make and deliciously decadent, these festive treats have everything going for them. Did I tell you I even eat them before training? Thanks to Truffeskis, I think it’s going to feel like Christmas in my heart, body and soul… all year round.
Would you care to join me in my madness?


Did you know?
The bright yellow book Ces galettes dont tout le monde parle, published in French in 2016, contains a section dedicated to festive treats… that will make an ordinary get-together feel like a cocktail party. And some of the recipes are truly surprising and unique.
There’s the To Die For, the Ginger Widow and the Salt of the Earth, which are all simple, easy-to-make recipes that are definitely worth trying out. The section in question is on pages 120-121. The book has not yet been translated into English but who knows?

Un jour peut-être… ;-)
