Truffeskis(Date puree and cacao dessert)

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!


  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.

  6. Optional: 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).

  7. Extra: 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. TheTruffeskis will act as a kind of festive trou normand, with a 100% guaranteed WOW factor.
