Chocolate Pistachio Truffles

A few weeks ago, my husband made some amazing pumpkin enchiladas.  They had a pistachio dust on top.  Well he ground up too many pistachios and I have been wondering what to do with them ever since.  So I decided to make chocolate pistachio truffles.

These chocolate pistachio truffles remind me of chocolate ganache.  They simply melt in your mouth.  I think it is due to the pecan butter I added.  If you haven’t tried pecan butter, you need to!  Amazing stuff.  There are dates in these chocolate pecan truffles, but I honestly can’t even taste or detect them at all.  This easy dessert can be made in a matter of minutes.  Vegan, gluten free and grain free. 🙂

  5. Roll the dough into balls, then roll the balls through the chopped pistachios.

  1. Hi Melissa, I made these several years ago and they were of course super-yummy! ..Fast-forward, I made them again this year and couldn’t remember if I used a dark “baking” chocolate bar or a regular dark chocolate bar. I was in a rush at the store, buying ingredients and ended up with the “baking” dark chocolate bar. It’s been several years since I first made them, so I don’t remember if there is a difference in taste, but I’m wondering if they are less-chocolate-y sweet. Also the version of the recipe I printed at the time calls for 8 oz. of medjool dates. I doubled the recipe and used 16 oz., along with the “baking” dark chocolate bars. I’m interested in your thoughts & comments on using “baking” chocolate (or regular chocolate) bars and “doubling” the recipe. Much thanks and a blessed 2023 to you and your family!
