Oh no I didn’t. No I did not just post one of the most delicious things in the world. Ok, it’s not THE MOST delicious thing in the world, but it takes top 100 for sure. I mean, it has triple chocolate in the title. That means it has to be good.

This is one of those recipes that I will get a ton of sh*t for. Because it’s not “strict” paleo. It has sugar in it. It’s naughty. It’s going against why we even eat paleo. Blah blah blah. I get it. I do. We all have sought out paleo to either feel better, look better. poop better, or just because everyone else is doing it. And paleo tells us sugar is bad. And if you’ve heard me talk about sugar before, you know that we have a very dysfunctional relationship. I hate it and don’t even look at it for months, then have a little bit and feel like balls.

BUT if we can’t ever have delicious treats while eating paleo, how is it sustainable? How are we suppose to never touch another cookie, another muffins, another chocolate truffle again? That’s why I make paleo treats. So paleo can be sustainable and you can enjoy it in every way. I ate 1/2 of one of these truffles and gave the rest away. They didn’t make me sick, they didn’t make me depressed, and they didn’t make me feel liked I weighed 3x what I weighed yesterday. Always a plus. But that’s what is important to remember about treats, they are TREATS. Paleo or not paleo. It’s so easy to go psycho about paleo treats and think that we can eat the whole thing and not feel guilty about it. Believe me, I would know. And wish that were the case. But we gotta learn to keep our sh*t on lock and not eat the whole batch. I know, it sucks.

I say all this because I recently came across a forum that was filled with some paleomg haterzzzzz. That’s how they spelled it. I should let them know it’s properly spelled haters. Anywho, these people obviously hatezzzzz paleomg. Understandable. I’m completely annoying, my photography sucks, and based on what they think, I suffer from disordered eating by not eating enough or I stuff my face constantly with chocolate covered walnuts, donuts, or paleo treats. Which one is it? If you honestly think I starve myself, you’re high. If you think I stuff my face sometimes, you’re totally right. No chocolate covered nuts though. They jack my sh*t up. I just wanted to clear the air though, if you’re a paleomg haterzzzz, I feel your pain. I live with the b*tch. But thanks for still supporting my blog. Love you too.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. WoW. That is beautiful. And what’s wrong with some sugar once in a while? I think I’d go crazy without your paleo treat recipes. I am 99% paleo (1% alcohol) and my bi-weekly “cheat” days are always paleo cheats. Nothing wrong with that. Keep on sending these delicious recipes! I make your banana bread every month. Better than real banana bread ever was!

  2. Haterzzzz can hate all they want cuz I gotz enough LOVE for you to make up for it!! You rock my world, and if I was a dude I would try to date you.

  3. Whoa, those look slightly chewy and super delicious!

    Also, your blog is freakin awesome! Haters gotta hate. If they don’t like this blog they should just stop reading it and shut up. And if they don’t like this blog, they are also dumb…

  4. A wise man once told me that if you have haters, you’re doing something right:) Some people are so very sad, I can’t think of a single thing to dislike about you, let alone hate,

  5. Do those haterzzz not realise that fruit has sugar in it? Carrots have sugar! (That’s why they make good cakes, duh). Are they so anti sugar they would avoid fruit? If not, they need to build a bridge and get over that river of bull-honkey.

    I love your treats. I make them, then take them to work to bribe my colleagues into doing things for me. The only person who ever said no was allergic to eggs – I will make truffles for him and own him for the rest of the year, no question 😉

    Any more news on the … Book?

      1. I’m so making these tonight! And 1 tb of raw honey is FINE.. people have a problem with that – then they look elsewhere! 😉

  6. You create awesomeness without corn syrup and soy and gluten and all the preservatives and just effing garbage that a lot of store bought treats have. That’s a win… Soooooo thank you!

    By the way these sound stupid delicious!!

  7. Isn’t jealousy a sick thing? But isn’t it kind of cool that people are jealous of your awesome blog? Your rule. They drool. I have no portion control. But I will still make these and prob won’t regret!

  8. Haterzzz gotta hate, but paleomg-ers gotta eat. Thanks for making it fun, tasty, and easy. You have to know you’re doing something right when you have a whole group created for no better reason than to tear you down. Keep on keepin’ on girlfriend. We’re right behind you, pale treats in hand.

  9. The world is full of stupid and jealous people. You already have thick skin and can laugh at yourself. I think you have it all together already! Thanks for your hard work on the blog and recipes. I cannot wait to make these!

  10. I immensely enjoy your daily recipes, especially the desert ones! Silly complainers shouldn’t get you down. I wish I could come up with amazing, delicious, paleo-based foods, but then I’d be eating terrible food on a daily basis. I look to you to help me out, and I have never been disappointed, Keep making the awesomeness and writing your hilarious blog! I cannot wait for your cookbook!

  11. Like I tell my young children, when people pick on you or tease you, they are likely jealous, or like you and don’t know how to show it! Ignore the immature and disrespectful adults acting like children, and focus on how much good you do for so many people! You were truly one of the reasons I decided to go paleo, and you are partly responsible for the 15 lbs i have lost and my triglycerides being at 49 for the first time ever! (They used to be in the 200s when I was doing Body for Life and Zone.) So thank you!!! Not a week goes by that I don’t make several of your recipes. I am making your sticky apple bars to take to our Crossfit social this weekend! I have taken your zucchini/squash/almond butter/coconut milk veggies many times, and they are always a hit!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe, this looks amazing!

    Thank you for all that you do for so many people!

  12. Soooo, they hatezzz your blog but yet with allllll the Paleo blogs out there, they still make in their day to come and read it? That’s AWESOME!

    1. I had to post my 2 cents about the lame-ass haterzzz too (the spelling is just totally LAME in itself! I feel dumber just for typing it.) First of all, anyone who takes time out of their life to spread hate of any kind just invites it right back into their own lives. Sad people. So, just realize they are only hurting themselves and don’t allow their negative BS into your mind. Hate breeds hate and paleo treats like yours breed happiness! 🙂

  13. Shrug of the haters, they’re jealous. Look at it this way – think of all the people that read the hater’s posts and then have to check out paleomg to get some material for their own hating and then find out it’s awesome! Any press is good press

  14. “But we gotta learn to keep our sh*t on lock and not eat the whole batch. I know, it sucks.”

    Right. Exactly.
    It’s called COMMON SENSE, people! (Actually… it’s not all that common.. I think it needs to be re-named.)
    Anyway, here’s another person who loves your blog & I think you should ignore stupid haters who can’t spell. 🙂

  15. i’m not a hater; i’m a lover! i love your approach to paleo because it’s doable. i’m just not going to give up sweets, no matter how “good for me” others tell me it would be. being able to have something sweet that doesn’t have refined sugar in it allows me to maintain MY paleo lifestyle. so, you rock and this is WINNING! thanks!

  16. I was shocked when I read this had sugar in it then I read the recipe list and didn’t see any sugar. Whew, I can still follow my favorite paleo blog!!
    Honey, a naturally occurring food. Sounds paleo to me. I quote:
    “Believed to be first created by Khoisan people at least 15 000 years ago, this simple mixture of honey, water and yeast was possibly the first human experiment in biotechnology.”
    It’s been around awhile and it’s good (in moderation like most things).

    I’m officially a despiser of “paleomg haterzzzzz” (if they can make up words, so can I).

  17. How in the hell are your so perfectly round looking? Every time I make some sort of truffle they come out looking like little turds. They taste fine, the just look a little mangled.

  18. I’m very sorry to hear about the blog bashing. I once had a blog, but got some serious negative reviews and such on it. Unfortunately, that always weighs heavier than the positive, even if the two are completely disproportionate.

    Anyway. I’m relatively new to paleo. Few months in and slowly but surely figuring it out and love it more and more. My husband is a crossfitter (I’d love to be but we don’t got the dolla bills) and he asked if I could take on the paleo challenge since I am the cook of the household and I love to cook. I have a HUGE sweet tooth. And before I paint a big pic of myself (pun) I should let it be known that I’m fit, 26, healthy bmi and workout 5 days a week. My point? Your blog was the first one I found and began cooking from. Delicious. And your blog has saved our paleo lifestyle. Because if I don’t have sweets, forget it. I’m all or nothing. I would’ve never considered paleo without all of the options you’ve given to me! Had the pumpkin waffles for dinner last night. Your acorn squash and bacon patty things are freakin bomb. My 6 year old decided that those were what she wanted for her bday dinner… Next year. The Cuban beef ommmmmmg it’s 845 in the am and I’m salivating. But I couldn’t have done it without your “treats” section. So keep strong, because you’ve kept us strong!

    Lastly. You and I have pretty much exact eating habits. It’s laffable to see someone objectively eat the same as I do. Morning is easy, easy, nbd. Afternoon is like oh yea I need to be healthy! Healthy lunch, but easy on the calories. The dinner is healthy and bedtime is a shit show. Buuuut I’m healthy. And at least now it’s a healthier shit show. If you’d’ve asked me last year if you ever thought I’d be replacing sugar with dates the answer would’ve been hell to. The. No.

    Long response, but chin up. People can really suck. And I like your pics. Haterzzzz gonna hate.

  19. I think your recipes are fantastic, and your writing is hilarious. You have a very realistic approach to eating and I like how you address the common pitfalls, cravings, etc. that we all succumb to once in awhile. Keep on keepin’ on, lady! Thanks for all you do!

  20. You know when you know you’ve made it? When you have your own haters group. Congratulations Juli B., you’re famous.

    I love chocolate.

  21. You get no shit from me – I see no problem with using small amounts of added natural, unrefined sweeteners from time to time. These look positively sinful! And that’s not a bad thing.

  22. The cool thing about people talking about your page on another page…those who havent read it will want to come see what all the fuss is about…then you stand a 50% chance of someone else loving you! So as the true Human Resourses person that I am my advice to you…go to the ugly page and politely say “Thank you :)”

    Oh & that guy who bribes his collegues w your treats…I TOTALLY DO THAT TOO! My accountant practically offered to work for free when he heard about the Sweet Potato Brownies! Now that one is the bomb-diggity!

  23. Ok my fav little recipe guru…if you take personal requests…do me a Paleo-ish veal marsala over spaghetti squash…you seem to have a knack for combining flavors that I just don’t have when experiementing. But Carrabba’s has a death grip on my checkbook & this overwhelming craving due to their Veal Marsala so you will be helping me afford your cookbook by figuring out this one for me.

  24. If you are going to have something “naughty” to eat, it might as well be Paleo approved, right? I mean we are humans after all. The only animals on the earth who get to mix ingredients, who get to create something delicious out of a bunch of ingredients that are otherwise quite boring on their own. We should enjoy and appreciate this ability. If I have the choice between a cupcake and one of these little morsels, my body will still love me after eating one of these. Cupcake? Body will hate me and strike revenge. Looks delicious by the way!

  25. In about 40 years all those haters will have wrinkles because of the refined sugar they ate while Juli will be running around still looking 35. “Dates!” she’ll exclaim to the crowd. “It’s because I ate dates!”

  26. I read your blog because I think you are hilarious, and I like how you are so honest and real about life. If that means eating sugar sometimes I can’t hate you for it because I do it too. If I think a recipe has too much sugar for me I won’t make it. Simple. No need to hate on paleomg. I love you and your stories and felt compelled to tell you that you are doing a great job. I might be biased because I am not strict paleo anyway, but you have my support. Also gonna make your breakfast sausage squash thing today

  27. Don’t hatezzz on my Juli! And go back to school you fools, it is hates. Anyway, don’t hate…because Juli is great! You better recognize! They’re just jealous my friend, keep doing your thing. This recipe looks delicious…100% paleo 80% of the time I always say…haha! Have a good day!

  28. OMG, JULI!! I love the little blobs. Mine are going to have feet so they can make an appearance on halloween. 🙂

    To the haterzzz, what were your stats for the CF games?! What, you didn’t make the cut to Regionals, like our AWESOME Juli did?! STFU!! Living in the real world, enjoying a few treats, may give your life real meaning. 🙂

  29. Holy mother…That is THE WORST website I have EVER seen. What freaks. I did NOT know that you could have a page dedicated to pure-evil-rudeness. I guess its how they feel better about themselves. Juli, please NEVER look at that page again.

  30. wow…stupid people. Just because you MAKE treats doesn’t mean thats all you eat. I actually just dealt with a public attack on my FB by “friends” after I posted something about following the paleo diet. No where did I say “its the best diet and everyone should follow it” but for some reason a bunch of people decided to tell me how stupid I am/it is. Anyway, one kind friend said “People like to feel anger, frustration, and self-righteousness. It’s not about factual correctness, it’s about opinions. Everyone thinks that their opinion is right and will do pretty much anything to (a) find people who agree with them and (b) knock down anyone who disagrees with them. ” …everyone just wants validation of their opinions 🙁 sorry you even had to read what they say to you! <3

  31. Hey Juli! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and trying out your recipes. This triple chocolate truffle recipe looks amazing! So amazing that I think I need to call you out and say that you did NOT just eat 1/2 a truffle…there is no way 🙂
    Looking forward to when the cookbook comes out!

    1. hahahaha half a truffle, fact. i had to prove a point that i have self control. the fact that i have self control may be a lie, but at least im telling the truth about the truffle. hope training is going well! keep kickin butt!

  32. Did you have to post this? Now I’m hungry… and I just ate breakfast. I guess I’ll be having chocolate chocolate and more chocolate for lunch.
    Glad to see you don’t take those haterzzzzz to seriously 😉 They’re just jealous anyway.

  33. These look so bomb! Definitely going to make a batch!! Thanks for posting another recipe!! Forget all the haters, they obv are lacking something in their lives!!!

  34. Haterzzzzzz? Really? Are they 12. Come on!

    I (and many many others) LOVE your site. I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE. I would have never found two of the best things in my life if I hadn’t stumbled on your site. Paleo and crossfit. Epic.

  35. There’s so much I could say about a haterzzz blog… For real people? Less hating, more gratitude. JB, your wonderful paleo treats recipes have at least taught me how to subsitute crap ingredients with healthier choices to make the occasional treat possbile without wanting to beat myself up for it. Thank you very much for that! I’m not perfect but I try hard to eat healthy. I like a treat every now and then. BFD. So gald you you do too! Love your blog and recipes. Don’t let those stupid POS haters get to you.

  36. Juli-
    Dude, you are seriously the object of my food stalker-ization (is that even a word? I totally made it up, feel free to use it!)
    I CANNOT wait for a new post from you, I seriously (no lie) make the new recipe you post ASAP. Who do these people that have a haterzzzz group against you, obviously they don’t appreciate you the way we all do!! You need to say “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me…..mmmmmmkkkkkkkay???” (I hate the word “ain’t” but it’s kinda appropriate here and fun to say!!)
    anywho, love love love you keep up the PURE AWESOMENESS!!

  37. WOW those look amazing. I don’t have a food processor so I’ve been trying to get by with my blender. Hilarious.

    Let people hate. However, you are one of the main reasons I continue to eat this way. I don’t have to live off of spinach/chicken salads. I can enjoy my food. Keep cooking and creating.

    F*ck the haters!

  38. Those people are clearly dumb. They don’t even know how to spell haters; therefore their opinions don’t count. Plus, can’t they find something better to do? Go outside, maybe get some vitamin D and become happier people who don’t need to write a blog with a bunch of unnecessary z’s in it. Obviously, they’re just jealous. And dumb. Yes I said it twice. That’s how dumb they are.

  39. I don’t get what’s not paleo about them. You made it sound as if sugar was a actual ingredient. But all this stuff looks legal to me. I’ll have to search your site for a list of paleo foods. If I remember from reading everyday paleo, all this stuff fits.

  40. Hi Juli! I have been following your blog for about a year now, since I first tried paleo. I just want to say that you are truly an inspiration. I love that you keep it real and are honest about the things you struggle with, whatever they may be. It helps me so much to keep things in perspective and remember that I am not the only one thinking about chocolate! Thank you for sharing your experiences as well as your ridiculously delicious creations. I do not think I could stick with paleo if I did not have your blog to follow!
    Sorry if that is rambley… I am done now. After another giant THANK YOU!!!

  41. Just out of curiosity…what size food processor do you use? I found a really good deal on a 9-cup capacity but I was worried about it being too small.

  42. I don’t know who those haters are, but they’re idiots! I just started reading your blog in the last few weeks, but I gotta say, I love you! I love your realistic approach to paleo and although I’m not completely paleo yet (just 1 week into the 21 day sugar detox), reading your blog makes me think that I can actually do it at some point. And not hate life.
    Also, completely separate from the food aspect, you make me feel better about being a single crossfit chick.
    Moral of the story: you’re awesome. Thanks for doing what you do!! xoxo

  43. Who has the time to devote to writing a whole anything devoted to bashing someone? If you have that kind of time on your hands I have some crap that you can do for me because I seem to never have enough to get it all done. I know going in that a recipe may not be 100% perfect paleo…but then again…neither am I. I have to listen to my body and eat in the way that fuels my body my WOD’s etc. Not just do something because someone else told me to. Nutrition is individual.

    You have kept me fed on many a night! These look absolutely awesome!! And I already have the ingredients…bonus!

  44. A life without chocolate is a sad sad life. Paleo is not a religion and honey + chocolate is delicious they need to lighten up.

    I LOVE your blog and look forward to reading it everyday. Thanks Juli and I can’t wait for the book!

  45. This looks soooo good!! I’m on Day 26 of my 30 Day Challenge and trying to decide which Paleo Treat to have when I finish!!!!! The pumpkin treat you posted about a week ago looks to die for, but this may be it!!!!!!!!!! Either that or I figured I’d mash a banana some almond butter and melt some dark chocolate on it and eat it all!!!!! 🙂 Keep posting your delicious recipes!!! I’ve made so many and they all are AWESOME!!!!!!

  46. ALSO…“If you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil you yourself will become ugly. Look only for the good in everything so you absorb the quality of beauty.” ― Paramahansa Yogananda

    In other words…these haterzzz are realllllllly ugly people.

  47. That’s so weird. Agree with someone above? How exactly does Hate come into the conversation when we’re talking about recipes? So dramatic.

  48. Those people have way too much time on their hands. And obviously flunked second grade spelling. My mantra is “It is a tendency for those who haven’t to look down on those who have.” I have a 15g or less sugar a day next week so I just might have to make these today…and eat them all. By the way, long ago you recommended Snooze as a place to eat while I was in Denver…what I had was SO not paleo but the OMG French Toast was foodgasmic. Thanks!

  49. Some people have nothing better to do than trash on other people. They’re just jealous that you’re “Amazeballs”, they didn’t come up with the idea first, and you’re good at what you do. Oh, and your abs…they’re jealous of those too. Wait, that’s me.
    My food processor is “indisposed” so I’ll have to file this one away for now but it looks beautiful. Bet it tasts like “angels in your mouth!”-my sons description of something really good! LoL

  50. Wow. Just read some of the haterzzzzzzzz’ comments. Jealous much? The ones that say there isn’t any food on your site for a serious crossfitter….have they actually looked through your recipes or did they just tune in this week? I’m confused. And annoyed at these people. Oh well. They act tlike you’re force feeding us all sweets all the time. These are just fun recipes for our “arsenal” when we feel like a little sweetness. Keep it up chica!

  51. In my opinion if it’s not brown sugar or white sugar it doesn’t entirely count as ‘bad’ sugar, I saw neither of those ingredients in the recipe so this indulgence is still better than a sugar filled truffle you would get in the store. Looks amazing and ignore those haterzzzzz, they’re probably stuffing their face with Krispy Kreme as they type.

  52. JULI!!! i love you…1) we need a countdown timer to april
    2) haterz gone hate….3) about to have chicken bacon alfredo for the second time this week 4) competition weekend for the hubs and we’re packing pumpkin granola…..i’m all like: ooh, taste this!!! with my friends but then i’m “don’t take so much!”

  53. People are too ridiculous. Guess what, you don’t get an award for being The Most Paleo, okay? Great if you eat nothing but raw veg and venison steaks all day, but don’t expect a gold star, and don’t hate on those of us who like our treats! Great food makes life worth living.

    You rock, ignore the haterz(zzz).

  54. Tel them haterzzzzz to step up to me and I’ll knock their azzes out! Ya heard!
    Ok I was trying to sound gangsta bad ass but sound like a spaz.
    Love you anyway. Keep on doing what you do. My box has a paleo challenge going on and soooo many of us use your recipes frequently!

  55. Long time blog stalker, first time commenter.
    I was excited to see a recipe with Medjool dates because I bought a costco pack a while back for a carrot cake recipe (fail!). Juli…these were so good and easy! I stopped myself at 3 (don’t judge). Can normal dates be used?

    You got me started on Paleo sweets, and I’ve decided to include paleo-friendly items at my new bakery. Thank you for the inspiration!!

  56. What a bunch of loser face turds! People need to remember that a blog is not a gateway into people’s life. You don’t come on the blog everyday saying this is what I ate, why I ate it, how much I ate, blah blah blah. How/why do people judge what other folks are putting into their mouth? Seriously, no blog is an accurate representation of one’s relationship with food.

    And you are awesome and I would never use the words that you did to describe yourself. I think you bring humor to a thing that terrifies most people. Altering your relationship with food, giving up grains, accepting that your body doesn’t get along with sugar, hard work! You make the process enjoyable and tasty!

    Thank you for all you do!

  57. I looked up the Paleomghaterzzzz thing and all I can is WOW! People seriously have NO lives. Do you really have nothing better to do than visit a website you don’t like to give you something to b*tch about?? Nobody’s twisting your arm to visit paleOMG daily or Juli’s facebook page so if you have a problem with it DON’T VIEW IT. Pretty simple.. people amaze me.

    Sorry I’m pregnant and hormonal and have been on a streak of telling people how I really feel. lol which by the way.. YOU ARE AWESOME. And so are your recipes 🙂

  58. Hi all – I know this is a silly question but there are a number of recipes on here with pumpkin seeds. I’m having trouble finding them in the store. Any recommendations on where to find them?

  59. You are such the realist. Sustaining a healthy diet is key, treats/indulgences are a must for sanity. Screw the haterzzzzz.

  60. I am shocked that there are paleomg haterz! I am a PaleOMG lovaaaaa!! Seriously, you have inspired me and my husband to get back into Paleo and keep it up with your delicious recipes, so we don’t feel like we’re missing out. I haven’t been craving bad things cause I make your wonderful treats and I can’t wait to make this one. thanks again for all you do and sharing such amazzzzing recipes! Can’t wait for your cookbook to come out!

    1. When people start givin you a hard time, I think thats how you know you made it… just ask Lindsey Lohan… umm… maybe not.

  61. Well devastated my first paleomg FAIL!! 🙁 followed the directions to the letter but was nothing like the pics. The mix was crumbly and did not firm up even to put toothpicks in. So having made your protein balls before consulted that recipe and added some nut butter and melted coconut oil. Currently have put the rolled balls in the fridge to harden and will attempt the chocolate dipping in about half an hr. fingers crossed

  62. What?! Who would hate your blog? What the hell did you do? And who would waste THAT MUCH NRG to post a paleomg haterzzz forum just because u kick ass and they suck ballz. (and it’s probably those delicious tripple truffle chocolately balls too) I don’t get it. I LOVE your blog!

    1. sorry..two comments. my computer was taking forever to send the comment and then I decided I needed to add something about balls. Anyway, u r awesome and your site is too

  63. thank you!! I love all your recipes and everything. thanks thanks thanks! I’m gonna make these for my study group <3 😀

  64. People suck and should keep their opinions to themselves or simply don’t read your blog.

    Anyway, I’m pretty sure this will be the first non Whole 30 treat I consume on November 1st. It’s been a tough month without chocolate and sugar and I’m ready to be reunited!! Thanks for all the awesome recipes!!

  65. I’m totally guilty of making so many of your recipes – this one included with a few slight modifications! I also made a version of your Mexican Breakfast Hash this weekend too. You’re seriously a genius! I’m a fan!! Keep on keeping on! Can’t wait for your cookbook. I’m buying it.

  66. Everybody needs to find their own tilt on Paleo. Dude, I will not give up treats if I don’t need to. Because of generous people like yourself, I don’t need to give them up. I used to bake like a demon before Paleo. Since starting Paleo I don’t “need” those sweets anymore. I now make a conscious decision to have a treat and that is very rare these days. Unless I am trying out your recipes for my cooking classes! Because of you I will be able to have a completely Paleo menu for my 13 year old daughter’s Halloween party, and they will LOVE it. It makes me feel good as a parent to feed my children and their friends healthfully and not have them do without at the same time. Sometimes it’s tough being a Paleo kid! My friend, YOU ARE CHANGING LIVES! And don’t you forget it. We love you Juli!

  67. My mix wasn’t a puree, not smooth like yours, more of a small chunks texture, what am I doing wrong?? I use a regular food processor with a rotating 2 armed blade

  68. Hey Juli. I’m impatiently waiting for my kitchenaid food processor to arrive (naughty online purchase) so that I can whip these beauties up! Can’t wait – I’m salivating just thinking about it.

    Thanks for the recipes – you’ve made my transition to paleo so much easier.

  69. okay, i only had 5 dates, and the stuff didn’t want to ball up on its own, so i mixed the melted chocolate into it and i’ll see if they congeal in the fridge. doesn’t matter if they do or don’t, because the stuff is CRACK! thanks! it’s THAT time of the month, so these are necessary.

  70. Seriously!! Paleomg Haterzzz!! They are just jealous of the Paleo way!!
    Truffles are being made now and I may eat the whole batch, but right back on it tomorrow!!
    Thanks for all of your delicious recipes..

  71. I’m sorta new at this paleo thing and I think you just saved my life. I’m pumped about this, I can now go to my girl friends cookie exchange and show these off. Thank you!

  72. KUDOS to you!! I made these as gifts for Christmas. They were perfect! And I ran out of pepitas, so I added sliced almonds. I think I quadrupled the recipe. everything was GREAT except some of the truffles just didnt want to stay on the sticks. Not sure how I could make them stay. I tried both cake pop sticks and tooth picks. I coated them with coconut powder instead of chocolate chips.

  73. Just found this site and doing an archive binge. Loving the food. Well, from what I’ve read, haven’t made any of it yet, but plan to. I also love the little stories and the snarkiness. Kinda reminds me of me. Except I wouldn’t even consider buying a Mac because I feel that paying twice what a regular PC would cost isn’t worth it. I just had to point out my amusement at this little bit: “another muffins,” cause, as a certain gray wall-eyed pegasus knows, eating a muffin is impossible, and it always becomes muffins.

  74. JUST have to say thank you. We just jumped on the Paleo game, and are SUPER excited.. but i was really worried about adjusting my kids… until i found this site.
    I made these today, except I used almonds, and almond extract that i had on hand.. and.. wow.
    where does Hershey’s get off??
    these are BY FAR the greatest chocolate masterpiece ever.. straight from Willy Wonka.. if i do say so myself!
    I’m wondering if these would be good with bits of strawberries inside.. and refridgerated… 😛 LOL!

  75. omg im looking at your recipes and i want to eat everything at the same time!! And btw you are freaking hilarious ! you remind me of myself alot. Im a new follower and you have me hooked!! Thanks for posting all of these yummy yummy goodness

  76. Juli – for what it’s worth, I love your website/blog. Your recipes are on the money, and who cares if they’re not “strict” paleo? Also, you’re a GREAT writer. Stay with it.

  77. Misery loves company. I have a picture on my wall that says “If everybody likes what you’re doing, you’re doing it wrong.” So kudos on your success! I hope to have a gaggle of haterzzz one day. Your blog is awesome! I read it and drool like every day. Keeping it real and providing slight cheat recipes is way better that pretending like we’re all perfect paleo citizens 100% of the time. Your recipes never disappoint, and have kept me from falling off the wagon many times. Keep up the delicious work, your loyal band of hungry paleo misfits are loving it!

  78. I think I’m going to make these to take to work tonight! I work in a busy restaurant and we run our little booties off so we’re always STARVING but many of the girls and boys are not super health-conscious so snacks end up usually being chips and other junk from the grocery store. Surrounded by so much delicious food and we’re stuck eating crummy chips, lol. Keep on keeping on…so many of us look forward to your posts every week. I regularly have at least two tabs of your recipes open in my browser!

  79. Love your recipes and your blog! They look fabulous!! All good!!!!! Only thing that drives me a tiny bit nuts so I don’t want to read the recipes is the way you use “your” before all the ingredients.. “your” chocolate chips, “your” cocoa powder, “your” pumpkin seeds, etc… Makes me want to yell… “IT”S YOUR RECIPE AND YOU’RE THE COOK!!! OF COURSE, THE INGREDIENTS ARE YOURS”. I realize I”m a little bit ridiculous and a little bit picky but it’s so annoying that I have to stop reading the recipe. So please don’t be annoyed with me cuz I just had to say it! 🙂

  80. Can I just say I love you? Not in a weird, stalker way but I love reading your blogs ( so funny!) and I LOVE your recipes! So al those haterzzzz can just hate all they want. You’re awesome!

  81. This was my first time making these but have one question. Although I loved them, my family isn’t quite onboard yet with my Paleo life, and they thought the chocolate was too bitter. They all agreed it needed the chocolate chips and more! Do you have any suggestions as to what I can add to sweeten it up a bit (aside from the chocolate chips)? I don’t want to add the traditional sweeteners like agave or stevia and not sure honey would allow it to set properly. Thanks for any help you can give me.

  82. I followed the recipe to a T and my dough came out really crumbly so it won’t form into balls. Anything I can add to help it hold together that won’t affect the taste too much? Maybe an egg or a splash of coconut milk?
