These raw chocolate orange truffles are a real delight. There’s nothing quite as sensuous and decadent as a chocolate truffle. The word itself is enough to make one salivate. Add to the dark sweetness of chocolate the bright zest of orange, and you’re in for a real treat. Like peanut butter and jam or oil and vinegar, chocolate and orange are just two flavors that belong together. Some people just can’t get enough of it. If you’re one of those people, then this recipe is for you.

Of course, chocolate truffles aren’t the only gourmet food that goes by the name. In fact, chocolate truffles borrow their name from the highly prized Tuber fungus, which they are thought to resemble. A fun piece of trivia to serve up with your raw treats.

The magic of the orange chocolate truffles is the marriage of bright and dark. The orange hits the high notes, while the dark chocolate strikes the bass. It’s all held together by the dates, which are a key player when it comes to raw desserts. In this context, the dates do an excellent job recreating the texture of the classic ganache.

  1. In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the almonds until finely ground. This takes about a minute.
  2. Add in the pitted and chopped dates, cocoa powder, vanilla and orange extract.
  3. Process again until the mixture begins to clump together.
  4. Using a tablespoon, scoop out even sized balls, and roll between hands to shape.
  5. For the final finish, roll each truffle lightly in cocoa powder. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes about 24 chocolate truffles.
