These chocolate bats truffles are so easy to make and they are great to get the kids involved as well. The balls are made with only wholesome ingredients, packing lots of fibre, healthy fats and protein.
They are also great to be made in advance and to keep in the fridge for any party or Halloween trick or treat!
For the balls:
¾ cup of almonds
10-15 medjool dates depending on the size –pitted
3 heaped tablespoons of raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon of UDO’s choice ultimate oil blend https://www.udoschoice.co.uk/shop/Udos-Choice-Ultimate-Oil-Blend-250ml
1 tablespoon of nut butter of your choice (I have used almond butter)
For the decoration:
6-8 oreos (I bought the classic one as they are vegan)
White chocolate chips (I could only found vegan one on amazon)
Dried raisins or cranberries
Black liquid icing for cake decoration
About ¼ cup of shredded coconut for dusting + the same of cacao nibs or chocolate flakes
To make the balls: place the almonds into a food processor and blitz until you have a coarse flour. Add all the ingredients and blitz again until you have sticky dough kind of consistency.
Roll the mixture into balls and dust them in either the shredded coconut, cacao nibs or chocolate flakes.
Split the Oreos into 2 and break the cookie in half to create some sort of wings for the bats. Gently tuck the wings into the balls. Use the white chocolate chips to make the eyes and with the black icing draw the little black pupils.
Slice the raisin or cranberries in half and pop them on as a nose. Enjoy!
