  • Put dates, water, cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of coconut flakes in a food processor fitted with the steel blade (reserve the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut flakes for coating the truffles).
  • Process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the food processor. Process for 4 more minutes, or until the mixture forms into a ball. If it hasn't formed into ball or turned into a smooth paste, add more water 1 tbsp at a time and process some more until it does.
  • Put the remaining 1/2 cup of coconut flakes on a large plate.
  • Line another large plate with parchment paper.
  • Take 1 tbsp of date mixture from the food processor and roll with your hands into a ball. Put the ball on a plate with coconut flakes, and roll, pressing slightly, so it's coated with coconut flakes all over. Put the truffle on parchment paper. Repeat with remaining date mixture.
