Usually my husband sneaks sweets like this and doesn’t leave me any. Well, this time the tables were turned!
He never even knew they existed. I ate them all first. Shame on me. No worries… I’ll make them again! (And again… and again…)
Makes 9 pralines
INGREDIENTS (STEP 1)
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup almonds
3 Tbsp coconut crystals or date sugar
INGREDIENT (STEP 2)
2-3 medjool (or moist, fresh) dates
INGREDIENTS (STEP 3)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch finely ground sea salt
- Food process only the cashews, almonds, and coconut sugar until they are a powder almost like the consistency of the coconut crystals or like brown sugar.
- Add the dates, one at a time. Make sure to remove the pit first!
- Finally, add the vanilla and salt.
- Use a round tablespoon measure to scoop 9 pralines, then top with an almond.
