Happy Almost Valentine’s Day everyone! How do you all feel about the holiday? Do you love it / hate it? I’ve always kind of loved Valentine’s Day, even the years I was single, because I love the color pink and love seeing hearts everywhere. Now that I’m in my twenties, it’s admittedly not quite as exciting. But when I was in high school, I remember there was this spread in Teen Vogue that I just loved – these girls who started their own vintage clothing store hosted a Galentine’s Day tea party, and it was just as cute as you’d imagine. Cookies, pink cupcakes, peonies and daisies, whimsically mismatched teacups… basically my aesthetic dream. So what did I do? I hosted my own Galentine’s Day! I invited all my best gal pals over for quiche, cookies, scones, cupcakes, and tea. It was a blast!
These little chocolate truffles would have fit in perfectly with that party I hosted so many years ago. They’re daintily bite-sized, but decadently chocolatey. I tested these truffles on my non-vegan boyfriend and friends, and they all LOVED them. Like, absolutely LOVED them. As in they keep requesting that I make more! ;) And with only four ingredients, they’re ridiculously easy to make. Plus, they’re a treat you can feel good about – 100% raw and vegan, filled with live nutrients and antioxidants to keep your Valentine healthy!
Raw Vegan Fudge Truffles
- Heaping 1/2 Cup Walnuts
- 8 Medjool Dates
- 2 Tbs Raw Agave Syrup
- 1/2 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
Put walnuts and dates into a food processor and process until a mealy dough is formed.
Then, add in cacao and agave and process until a smooth ball is formed in the food processor.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out little balls of the dough and use hands to form little balls. If desired, roll balls with a coating of raw cacao powder to finish.

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
