Pistachio Chocolates


Pistachio Chocolates

Yield: 12 Pistachio chocolates


⅓ cup blanched pistachios, chopped

10 dried plums, pitted

10 pitted dates

1 tablespoon pure cocoa dessert powder

1 pinch of salt

¼ cup pistachios, crushed to powder


With an electric mixer mix pistachios, dried plums, dates, cocoa and salt. Mix for two minutes until a sticky dough forms. If there is not enough to form small balls, add a couple more dates. With the help of a spoon, make balls, smaller than the size of a walnut.

Press the dough into a flattened circle. Arrange the chocolates on a tray covered with parchment paper. Let cool. Once the balls are cool, roll them in the pistachio powder and serve. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container.
