Truffles denote decadence,sophistication and a guilty pleasure.  These sweet little morsels only taste like it!  These healthy truffles get their natural sweetness from the dates, are gluten free and take but a few minutes to assemble.  With the aromatic flavoring of almonds, cocoa, orange juice and Amaretto liqueur, they are a perfect little addition to your sweet holiday offerings.  The Amaretto makes them just a little bit naughty but the wholesome ingredients make them nice!  They are made directly in the food processor for no fuss, easy clean up.  A guilt-free sweet little nugget!
