Raw Chocolate-Ginger Truffles Recipe

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a batch of lightened up truffles. Raw cacao powder gives the candies a rich, dark chocolate flavor, while spicy candied ginger and zesty orange add some brightness. Pop one whenever you need a pick-me-up—and feel good about your choice, knowing they're vegan and refined sugar–free.

15 pitted medjool dates
1/4 cup candied ginger
1 cup raw cacao powder, divided
