No one will ever guess that such fudgey chocolate balls could possibly be 100% free of sugar, butter, and flour. Shhhh… no need to tell anyone they’re healthy. Winking smile

Healthy? Who, me?

German Chocolate Fudge Bites

(Makes 10-14 balls)

Inspired by my Hot Fudge Brownie Larabars

  • 3/4 cup pitted dates (I like Sunmaid, because they’re softer) (120g)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • optional: feel free to add some chocolate chips

Blend all ingredients together very well. (I recommend using a food processor for best results, as they’ll be very sticky in a blender.) Squish the dough together – I transferred the dough to a plastic bag then smushed it together in the bag. It’s much less messy this way! Roll into balls, cookie-cuttered shapes, or bars… or you can even use it for a pie crust!

What recipes do you want to make today?

I try at least two experiments per day, since creating recipes is my full-time job.

Today, I’m working on chocolate chunk cookies, molten chocolate pudding cake, and chocolate-raspberry truffle ice cream. So basically, it’s going to be one big chocolate fest. But that’s no different from any other day! (I’m also working on some non-chocolate recipes, and of course I have to cook actual meals as well… I’ve gotten really good at multitasking in the kitchen; it’s not hard to make a bunch of things at once if you’ve already made a mess.)

*I’ll write more about yesterday’s tv feature (with a link to the actual story) tomorrow. Thank you so much for all the well-wishes, both on the blog and CCK Facebook Page.
