Cocoa Nut Truffle Balls

Who needs to buy truffles, when we can make them? Here's a simple recipe for truffles that is fairly healthy and it's a really simple recipe.

Here's what you need to start
1 cup cashews
1/3 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup cocoa cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup dried coconut

First soak the cashews for 20 minutes, and drain them. Now combine the cashews and the corn syrup in a food processor, and process until it's smooth. Add the cocoa and vanilla, and process it again. Now add the coconut and process it again. Allow the batter to rest for about 20 minutes. Next roll the batter into balls, and if you choose you can coat the balls in sesame seeds or coconut.
