Raw Peppermint and Nut Chocolate Truffles

These raw "candies" became an instant favorite for my mint-chocolate lovers. The others just loved the dark chocolate/nutty/chewy ones. It was a perfect treat for getting into the holiday mood. Something about the peppermint... :)
Basic Recipe
5 Dates, soaked in enough water to cover until soft, about an hour, or you can chop them up
1/3 C Melted Coconut Oil
3/4 C Raw Cocoa Powder
1/2 C Agave (or pure maple syrup, could do half and half)
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
Mini Muffin Cups
Blend all ingredients on high until smooth. It's okay if there are still little date pieces. Pour into mini muffin cups. I did about 10  half full, and then topped them with chopped almonds, raisins, and walnuts.
For the last 1 C of chocolate I added 1 tsp. of Alcohol free Peppermint Oil and mixed in my left over almonds and walnuts. Think Yummy Raw Peppermint Patties! You can add any varieties of fruits and nuts and they are all delish!
