Ingredients
 
 

  • 100 g prunes - dried and pitted
  • 70 g almonds - flaked or whole
  • 32 g raisins
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 clementine - zest and juice
  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE SHELL
  • 50 g dark chocolate - dairy free and sugar-free - Roo used Free'ist
  • 10 g coconut oil - or butter if you can tolerate it

Instructions
 

  • Place all the ingredients, apart from the chocolate into a mini food processor (or 'normal' one if that is all you have). Whizz until you have a smooth paste. You may have to stop and start a lot and scrape down the sides to achieve this
  • Place the mixture in the freezer for 10 minutes (this make it easier to handle)
  • Remove the mixture from the freezer and roll it into approx. 20 bite-sized balls
  • Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes while you prepare the chocolate shell
  • Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Add the coconut oil.
  • Either place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, or into the microwave, to melt the mixture together. If you are using a microwave, melt the chocolate slowly (15 seconds at a time between stirs) or it will burn
  • Remove the truffles from the freezer and roll them in the melted chocolate mixture
  • Place on a plate and refrigerate until set and ready to eat
