Process in a food processor. Roll into small, truffle sized balls. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. You can eat them without chilling, but they are best once they are a little more solid and cool.

Raw Food Punk's Thoughts

In my efforts to make the raw chocolate halvah, I realized I was super low on cocoa powder, ouch! Fortunately, however, I've decided bumps in the road like that are perfect opportunities to get creative so I started experimenting with some other ingredients until I had something worth eating! I started adding vanilla, then threw in some coconut oil, plus the little bit of cocoa powder that I did have. The nutty sesame flavor mixed with the chocolate, coconut, and vanilla give these little "truffles" a malted chocolate flavor that really surprised (and delighted) me. Definitely a successful endeavor, enjoy!

Raw Malt Balls/Tahini Truffles
3
3 out of 5

I whipped some up this evening after having some major cravings. I used tahini, cocoa powder, vanilla, and a healthy squirt of agave.
It was way too sticky and wet to roll into balls so I spread it on top of a raw cookie and chowed down. Even ate a few spoonfuls by themselves too :)

I liked this. I just gave it a whirl. I desired a little sweetener, so added a touch of agave. Thanks for the recipe!

I love halva. Using tahini was such a good idea. I've made halva balls but started with sesame seeds. I'll definitely make these when I get to go shopping at Whole Foods.
