Raw Mushroom Treats

  • 10 dates for the mushrooms stems
  • 2 cups dates pre-soaked in water for 1 hour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa butter melted
  • 3/4 cup hazelnuts
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp gingerbread spice
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp almond milk

White Chocolate Coating

  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter melted
  • 4 tsp coconut butter
  • 1 tsp cocoa nibs for the mushroom freckles


  • First cut your dates into halves. Mine were pitted and not very soft. It is ideal if the dates are slightly hard because they will be your mushroom stem.
  • In your blender mix the pre-soaked dates with the melted cocoa butter until smooth.
  • Add the hazelnuts, cashews, vanilla, salt, gingerbread spice, cacao powder and almond milk and mix until you get a pretty sticky dough.
  • Remove from the blender and chill in the fridge for an hour.
  • Now using your hands form 10 balls (mine were around 6 cm diameteand cut into 2 halves. These are going to be your mushroom hats. Now carefully push a little mould into them with your fingertip so you can carefully push your half a  date into it. Transfer to the freezer before dipping them in the white chooclate coating.

White Chooclate Coating

  • Melt the cocoa butter with the coconut butter in a pan on low heat. If you want a very sweet coating you are free to add some maple syrup too.
  • Now dip the mushroom hats several times into the melted white chocolate. I think, I dipped them around 5 times or so. If you go for the mushroom freckles add some cocoa nibs.
