Date Truffles recipe | Easy no cook date truffles

Date truffles with video

Date truffles is a simple no cook recipe made using 3 main ingredients, dates,cocoa powder and nuts. It is more similar to our Indian dry fruits ladoo. Valentines day is even more special to us as it is our son Varun's birthday. This year he is celebrating his 12th birthday. When i was thinking of what to post for today,this idea of dates truffles came to my mind. Last week we went to India for my sister's son Upanayanam(sacred thread ceremony) Generally bakshnams like murukku,ladoo will be distributed to all the relatives during weddings and upapanayam in our tradition. But she wanted to make it healthy and gave a Dates packet for all of them. I loved that idea of giving dates and she packed few extra packets for me too.So i thought i will try this dates truffles recipe for valentines day. You can also pack this dates truffles for kids snack box too. Check out my
