In some delicious truffles that will make the little ones in the house try a healthy, tasty and very fun combination to make them see that pumpkins are not only decorative for Halloween, but they can also be very delicious.

  • 150 grams of chocolate,

  • 150 grams of pumpkin,

  • 125 grams of almonds,

  • 4 dates,

  • 3 tablespoons of coconut zest,

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil,

  • 1/2 small spoonful of ground cinnamon,

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 small tablespoon of clove powder.

Preparation method

1. We will begin by cutting the pumpkin into squares of an average size to be placed on a tray and thus take them to the oven at a temperature of about 180 degrees for 20 minutes until it is soft.

Ideally, the oven is already preheated before placing them in it.

2. Taking advantage of the time in the pumpkin oven, we will crush the almonds, and we will take to a bowl together with the grated coconut and mix until forming a kind of flour with them.

3. Once the time is up, we take the pumpkins out of the oven and purée them in a bowl and add the flour.

4. On the other hand, we chop the dates very small before adding them to the purée.

5. After this we add the flour together with the purée, the coconut oil, the cinnamon, the ginger and the cloves, and we knead until we obtain a soft dough which we must cover with transparent paper and take to the refrigerator.

6. Once it is cold we will make small balls of mace which we will pass through melted chocolate.

7. To melt the chocolate we place it in a container and then in a pot in a water bath so that it does not burn us.

If you wish once at the end you can use coconut grated to decorate the truffles and thus add more fun to them.
