Medjool Date Pecan Chocolate Truffles

Medjool Date Pecan Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients

  • 12 Natural Delights Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 12 pecan halves
  • 5 oz (142 g) dark chocolate (70%), chopped
  • 2 ½ oz (70 g) white chocolate, chopped

Preparation

  1. Using a small paring knife, cut a slit into each Medjool date and remove the pit. Gently squeeze a Medjool date open and stuff the pecan half inside. Repeat with remaining pecan halves and Medjool dates.
  2. Using a double boiler, gently melt the chocolate and remove from heat once it’s melted. Be sure to keep any moisture, water or even steam away from the chocolate.
  3. Using a fork, dredge the stuffed dates through the chocolate and place onto a wire cooling-rack. Let cool completely.
  4. Place the melted white chocolate into a small piping bag. Drizzle the white chocolate decoratively back and forth over the chocolate-dipped Medjool date. Let cool completely before serving.
