If you’ve been reading this blog for a really long time, you might remember one of my most popular recipes, the Fudge Babies.

The original raw chocolate balls, fudge babies had no added sugar, no oil or heavy cream, and they tasted like pure chocolate bliss.

The recipe sparked hundreds of spin-offs from bloggers all over the world, with over 4,000 likes on facebook, and it was one of the three recipes I was asked to make during my guest appearance on USA Today.

There was only one problem with the fudge babies…

Like many other raw desserts, the base of the original raw chocolate fudge balls was raw nuts, such as walnuts or cashews.

This meant everyone allergic to nuts or who chose not to eat them couldn’t join in the fudge baby fun.

So finally, here is a chocolatey raw dessert that is 100% completely nut-free!

The pinch of salt gives these raw chocolate truffles surprising flavor depth, making up for the lack of fat in the recipe, and they’re pretty easy to whip up for a quick snack.

Note: If you’re looking for a more traditional truffle recipe instead of one with dates, here is my classic Chocolate Truffle Recipe.

Raw Chocolate Fudge Balls

These raw chocolate fudge balls are nut free, vegan, gluten free, and there's no baking required.
4.95/5 (22)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 10 – 14 truffles


  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • small handful mini chocolate chips, optional
  • optional cocoa, shredded coconut, melted chocolate, etc.


  • Combine the first three ingredients (and chips, if using) in a strong food processor or Vitamix, and blend until completely smooth. Scoop into a bowl, and freeze until the sticky dough is firm enough to roll balls (a half hour or so). Once balls are rolled—either with your hands or a mini cookie scoop—you can roll in the optional cocoa or coconut, or just eat them plain. I store leftover raw chocolate fudge balls in the freezer to keep them as firm as possible.
