Did you like this truffles ? Yesterday I made dates syrup at home, so I got some leftover date meat which has more fiber and nutrients in it..I don't want to waste that so my husband gave me this idea. Believe me, the taste was too good..They are quick to make, so sweet and tasty and easy to pop in your mouth one after the other! They are naturally delicious as they are - just dates, cocoa and coconut. Simply perfect! They come together in minutes. If you get sugar cravings, this is a best solution. Try this truffles and let me know your feedback.
